Understanding Met
On Prisoner Release

Jerusalem (JTA) — Israeli
and Palestinian negotiators
have reached an understan-
ding on an initial release of
Palestinian prisoners.
After a day of talks in the
Egyptian border town of
Taba, the two sides re-
portedly agreed on the
release of sick, aged and
young Palestinian prisoners.
The release of prisoners,
expected to begin next week,
was intended to demonstrate
to the Palestinian people
some immediate results
from the self-rule accord
signed last month in Wash-
ington by Israel and the
Palestine Liberation Organ-
ization.
Though the number of
prisoners to be released was
not disclosed, sources among
the Taba delegates said the
first release would total
about 1,000 Palestinians.
There had been reports
that Israel was planning a
massive prisoner release,
and the Palestinians
originally had demanded the
release of 12,000 it said were
being held in Israeli prisons
for security reasons.
But both sides have agreed
that the release will come in
stages throughout the five-
year interim autonomy
period.
Prime Minister Yitzhak
Rabin, speaking to reporters
during a visit to the Gaza
Strip town of Khan Yunis,
said prisoner releases would
proceed in accordance with
progress in the negotiations.
Israel and the PLO, Mr.
Rabin said, are committed to
negotiating the implementa-
tion of the self-rule accord
within two months —the
timetable mandated by the
declaration of principles that

forms the backbone of the
accord.
Mr. Rabin warned that
there would be ups and
downs in the talks, but he
seemed confident the parties
could meet the deadline.
One snag was encountered
on the issue of security in
the territories. According to
the agreement, Israeli forces
must withdraw from Gaza
and the West Bank town of
Jericho by April 13.
Senior Palestinian dele-
gate Nabil Sha'ath told
reporters that Israeli pro-
posals on security in the two
regions meant the perpetua-
tion, in effect, of the current

Mr. Rabin is
confident that the
parties will meet
the deadline.

Israel Defense Force occupa-
tion.
The head of the Israeli
delegation, Gen. Amnon
Shahak, sought to cool the
atmosphere by telling
reporters that differences
were to be expected. He urg-
ed members of the media
covering the negotiations
not to "take the
temperature" of the talks
every half-hour.
Mr. Rabin said Israel holds
9,500 prisoners and security
detainees. He said other
published figures were
wrong, misleading and
harmful to the negotiations.
Some reports have put the
total at as high as 14,000
prisoners.
