    Background: A HEBRON CITIZENS' COMMITTEE IN OCCUPIED JORDAN MET YESTERDAY (MONDAY APRIL 27) TO DISCUSS THE CLOSURE OF 800-ACRES OF LAND NORTH-EAST OF THE TOWN FOR "MILITARY PURPOSES". MORE THAN 300 LEADING FIGURES ATTENDED THE MEETING WHICH HAD BEEN CALLED BY THE MAYOR, SHEIKH JA'ABARI.

    HE OPENED THE DEBATE BY ATTACKING THE ISRAELIS, THE ARAB GOVERNMENT AND THE GUERRILLAS IMPARTIALLY. THE SEIZURE OF LANDS, HE SAID WAS OBJECTIONABLE - WHETHER FOR CIVILIAN OR MILITARY PURPOSES. SHEIKH JA'ABARI SAID THERE WAS ENOUGH JEWISH LAND AND PROPERTY IN HEBRON FOR RESETTLING ISRAELIS IN THE TOWN, "BUT NOBODY HAS ADDRESSED ANY SETTLEMENT PROPOSAL TO ME". IF THEY DID, "HE WOULD NOT OBJECT".

    A REFUGEE LEADER SUGGESTED A PROTEST STRIKE, ADDING THAT HE HAD NOTHING TO LOSE. BOTH THOSE WHO HAD, INCLUDING THE MAYOR, DECIDED TO KEEP THIS WEAPON IN RESERVE.

    THE ONLY DEFINITE OUTCOME OF THE MEETING WAS THAT A "MEMORANDUM OF PROTEST" WOULD BE SENT TO THE ISRAELI DEFENCE MINISTER, GENERAL DAYAN.
