To U.N. Force

Tel Aviv (JTA) — The first
Israeli to join a United
Nations peacekeeping force
has been named by the
international agency's New
York headquarters and is to
serve in the former
Yugoslavia.
Albert Ben-Abu, 46, an
immigrant from Morocco, is
to serve as a civilian peace
negotiator in talks between
the warring factions in
Croatia and Bosnia-
Herzegovina.
The United Nations had
never invited Israel to con-
tribute to any peacekeeping
forces until last October,
when it solicited all U.N.
missions to contribute per-

sonnel to the U.N. forces in
Yugoslavia.
About 20 Israelis vol-
unteered for the U.N. service
and others are likely to be
named by the U.N. shortly.
Mr. Ben-Abu said he.
thought he was selected for
the post because of his
military experiences as well
as his work in the housing
and foreign ministries. He
served as an army spokes-
man and also worked in
military intelligence.
Mr. Ben-Abu, who is fluent
in five languages, holds a
B.A. in political science from
the Hebrew University in
Jerusalem and is working
toward his M.A.
