Jerusalem (JTA) — Jewish
settlers rampaged through
Ramallah, reportedly caus-
ing extensive property
damage in the West Bank
Arab town.
But other than that and a
stone-throwing incident in
Hebron, the fourth anniver-
sary of the start of the Pales-
tinian intifada passed
without serious incident in
the administered territories,
though the Israel Defense
Force and other security
services were kept on high
alert.
The Palestinian popula-
tion throughout the ter-
ritories observed a general
strike to commemorate the
beginning of the uprising
against the Israeli presence
on Dec. 9, 1987.
But many ,towns and
villages were already under
strict curfew.
The twin towns of
Ramallah and El-Bireh, nor-
th of Jerusalem, have been
under curfew since the eve-
ning of Dec. 1, when a Jew-
ish settler, Zvi Klein, was
wounded fatally while driv-
ing through El- Bireh.
The LDF, still searching for
the perpetrators, indicated
that the curfew in the area
would continue until the end
of the week.
Peace Now sent a telegram
to Defense Minister Moshe
Arens, protesting that the
continuing curfew amounted
to collective punishment.
With the 100,000 residents
of the two towns confined to
their homes, Jewish settlers
went to the site of the
shooting in El-Bireh to end
the shiva, the seven-day
mourning period for Mr.
Klein.
According to Ramallah
residents, when the prayers
ended, Jews poured through
the streets, smashing wind-
shields and the windows of
shops and homes.
They plastered walls with
flyers saying "Jewish blood
will not be spilled."
Tension also ran high in
Jerusalem, following the
Cabinet's decision to allow
Jewish settlers to remain in
the Arab village of Silwan,
which is within Jerusalem's
municipal boundaries, if
they could prove ownership
of real estate there.
When Jewish squatters
took over several Arab
houses in Silwan on Oct. 9,
claiming their legal pur-
chase, local Arab residents
threatened violence.
In the wake of the Cabinet
ruling, the police took

preventive measures.
Security was reinforced in
Arab neighborhoods in
Jerusalem, especially
Silwan, and West Bank
Arabs were prohibited from
entering Jerusalem.
In Washington, the State
Department issued a state-
ment on the Cabinet's deci-
sion,. calling on "all sides to
avoid unilateral acts that
might exacerbate local ten-
sion or make it more difficult
to make progress in the
peace process.
"All people in Jerusalem
ought to uphold and promote
harmony in the city by not
acting in ways that would
prejudice prospects for the
peace process," said the
department's spokeswoman,
Margaret Tutwiler.
Meanwhile, Aharon Domb,
a leader of Jewish settlers in
Hebron, said his car was
stoned. He said he opened
fire on the attackers and
"probably hit" one of them.
Mr. Domb was summoned
- to the Hebron police station
for questioning. Security
forces made several arrests
and are holding one youth on
suspicion of rock-throwing.
Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir told the Knesset
that the Palestinians have
gained nothing from the in-
tifada and will suffer even
greater losses if it continues.
He also warned that violence
would have a negative affect
on the peace process.

E.C. Helps
With Repayment

Brussels (JTA) — The Eu-
ropean Community's Ex-
ecutive Commission is help-
ing Israel repay a $192 mill-
ion loan and aid package for
repair of damages incurred
during the Persian Gulf
War.
The aid package was ap-
proved last March to allow
Israel to borrow on the Eu-
ropean capital market. Now
the commission has agreed
to a one-time $33 million
grant to ease interest
payments.
The commission decided
last month to release $57
million for assistance to Pa-
lestinians in the West Bank
and Gaza Strip who suffered
economically as a conse-
quence of the Gulf war.
Meanwhile, a resolution
adopted last week by the Eu-
ropean Parliament, the
E.C.'s legislative body based
in Strasbourg, France, called
for the freeing of Jews un-
justly imprisoned in Syria.
