Ansar Camp
Called Legal
by High Court

The Israeli Supreme Court
last week upheld the basic
legality of the Ansar deten-
tion camp in south Lebanon,
where some 5,000 out of an
original 9,000-plus de-
tainees are still being held.
The high court rejected a
request by several of the de-
tainees that they be recog-
nized as prisoners of war.
At the same time, the
court held that the Fourth
Geneva Convention does
apply to them — and hence

detainees to meet with their
lawyers when they sought
to do so. This has not been

President Meir Shamgar,

General and later as Attor-
ney General, made a major
contribution in the late
1960's and 1970's to the de-
velopment of legal norms
and practices governing Is-
rael's behavior in occupied
territories. Shamgar is con-
-sidered an expert in inter-
national law and especially
the law of war.

Council (GCC) states to buy
the F-X planes, the
F-16/79 and F-20. "We be-
lieve that these highly-
capable aircraft meet the
near-term requirements of
these states for modern air
defense fighters," the
statement said. "These air-
craft will allow GCC states
to provide for their own de-
fensive needs while lessen-
ing dependence on external
support for operations and
The F-X planes are speci-
fically designed for export
so that the U.S. will not de-
plete its own stock of ad-
vanced planes by selling
them to foreign countries.
However, a source noted
that the Administration's
effort has been hurt by its
recent sale of advanced
planes to Pakistan and
Venezuela, making other
