Israel Frees Prisoner
As Goodwill Gesture

Jerusalem (JTA) — In an
effort to build confidence
among Palestinians for the
implementation of the self-
rule accord signed last mon-
th in Washington, Israel has
released its longest- held Pa-
lestinian prisoner.
Twenty-three years after
Salim al-Zeri entered the
gates of an Israeli jail, he
was set free to the cheers of
hundreds of Palestinians
who had turned out to greet
him.
Mr. Zeri, 50, had been a
commander in Palestine
Liberation Organization
Chairman Yassir Arafat's
Al Fatah movement. He was
jailed in 1970 after he at-
tempted to infiltrate Israel
with a terrorist unit from
the sea. He was sentenced to
life imprisonment.
The release came as Israel
and the PLO were scheduled
to resume their negotiations
in the Sinai border town of
Taba over the implementa-
tion of the self-rule accord.
There are an estimated
11,000 Palestinian detainees
and prisoners in Israeli jails.
The PLO has demanded
that all the prisoners be
released as part of the ac-
cord, but Israeli officials in-
sist that prisoners convicted
of murdering Israelis will
not be released.
Yet Israel is preparing a
massive release of other
prisoners — including ad-
ministrative detainees, wo-
men and minors as well as
the elderly and sick — to
demonstrate some immedi-
ate positive results from the
self-rule accord.
It is believed that, as a
first step, Israel will release
some 4,000 prisoners who
have been sentenced up to
five years in jail.
But Israeli sources stress-

ed that the criteria by which
Palestinian prisoners would
be released — and conse-
quently their total number
— would be negotiated in
Taba. In the 1960s, Mr. Zeri
was involved in a number of
terrorist attacks against
Israel Defense Force targets
in the Gaza region, but no
Israeli soldiers were hurt as
a result of his actions.
Although he had murdered
an Arab who had been
suspected of collaborating
with the Israeli authorities,
the act was not considered
grounds for his continued
imprisonment.
A government spokesman
said that since no terrorist
attacks had been

perpetrated by the PLO
since the signing of the ac-
cord, there was "no reason
not to release Zeri after 23
years in prison."
Foreign Minister ShimOn
Peres said there was no con-
nection between the release
of Mr. Zeri and the Israeli
demand for the release of
missing Israel Air Force
navigator Ron Arad.
Mr. Arad bailed out from
his fighter plane over Leb-
anon in 1986 and was
believed to have been held
by pro-Iranian troops in
Lebanon. The last time any
message was received that
he was alive was in October
1987. There have been
sporadic reports that he was
