ANNEX
Letter dated 5 May 1980 from the Permanent Observer of the
Palestine Liberation Organization to the United Nations
addressed to the Secretary-General

Further to my letter of 2 May, I should like to inform you that the name of the girl kidnapped by Zionist troops at the girl’s college in El Bireh, is Muntaha El Abed.

I should also like to inform you that on 3 May, a taxi-cab driver, George Khoury, was shot by members of the Zionist forces of occupation.

On 29 May the mayors of Hebron and Halhoul, along with the Sharei judge, the religious leader of Hebron, were kidnapped in the middle of the night and taken to the police fortress in Hebron, where they wee forced to board a helicopter, black hoods over their heads, and were told that they were being flown to the Ministry of War. In fact, they were flown to Udeis eh in southern Lebanon and ordered to get out. At Udeis eh the three deportees took taxis via Nabatiyeh to Beirut where they arrived at noon Beirut time, on 3 May.

I am instructed by Chairman Arafat to ask you to use your good offices to ensure the return of the mayors to their towns so that they can resume the responsibilities for which they were elected by the people and also to ensure the return of the religious judge of Hebron.

(Signed) Zehdi Labib TERZI
Permanent Observer
