Sandinista leaders only
after the success of their
revolution.
"On Feb. 5, 1978, the
Sandinista - Palestinian
connection was publicly
confirmed. Mr. Escobar
and Issam Sli of the Mar-
xist Democratic Front for
the Liberation of Pales-
tine issued a joint com-
munique emphasizing
`the bonds of solidarity
which exist between the
two revolutionary organ-
izations' and condemn-
ing U.S. support of Israel
and Nicaragua.
"Cuba, Venezuela and
Panama were the principal
suppliers of arms to the
Sandinista revolution until
the final weeks. However,
just before the final offen-
sive against the Somoza
government, large, vital
shipments arrived from
Libya and Algeria. Accord-
ing to at least one source,
the arms, which came from
North Korea, were sent to
Nicaragua on a Lebanese-
registered vessel owned
and operated by the PLO.
It was not the first such
shipment arranged by
Tomas Borge, now interior
minister of Nicaragua and
previously an emissary of
Fidel Castro in the Middle
East.
"After the revolution, the
Sandinistas signed a
`goverment-to-government
agreement' with the PLO,
and the PLO opened an em-
bassy in Managua. The PLO
then lent the government
nearly $12 million.

of the revolution, Yasir
Arafat received a royal wel-
come in Managua. Borge
told him, 'We say to our
brother Arafat that
Nicaragua is his land and
the PLO cause is the cause
of the Sandinistas.'
"Arafat replied, 'The
links between us are not
new, your comrades did
not come to our country
just to train, but also to
fight.' The last was most
likely a reference to the
1970 Jordanian war.
"In January 1982, Arafat
announced that the PLO
had sent pilots to Nicaragua

Department confirmed the
former.
"In May, Managua Radio
announced a PLO gift to the
Sandinistas: a Boeing 707.
A State Department report
of May 1983 said the plane
never left Tanzania, due to a
lack of Nicaraguan re-
sources to transport it to
Central America. The same
report said further that
PLO technicians had tried,
but failed, to make
Nicaragua's radar system
operational.
"This past April, the
Nicaraguan government
hosted the Latin American
regional meeting as one of a
series in Africa, Asia,
Europe and Latin America
prior to the International

"Since the war in Leba-

to a Sandinista defector,
PLO pilots, technicians and
advisers still operate in
Managua."

PLO Blames
Israel for
Athens Killing

ATHENS — The Pales-
tine Liberation Organiza-
tion (PLO) has refuted a
claim that a faction of the
Fatah terrorist group was
responsible for the killing of
a prominent PLO official
here and is blaming Israel
for the murder instead.
A spokesman for the PLO
office in Athens Monday
said that Israel was behind
the shooting of Mamoun
Mereish in a coastal suburb
last weekend. Mereish was
an aide to deputy PLO
commander Khalil Wazir.
The Kuwaiti newspaper
Al-Qabas reported receiv-
ing a telephone call from an
unidentified man Saturday
claiming that two men from
Fatah, the main faction in
the PLO, had done the
shooting.
