Hussein cannot wipe out the palestinian movement with out wiping out the palestinian a High ranking West Ern Diplomat in Beirut said.

But Many of the guerrilla Strong Points Are buried deep in teeming refugee Camps and the can t get at them with out massacring the women and children huddled in the tent villages around them. Hussein noted for his valor and his Western principles is not Likely to order his into the Camps. Some of his generals taunted by the guerrillas and aggravated by the restraints placed on them the last three years might be tempted. The leftist regimes of Iraq and Syria hostile to Hussein s pro Western government have troops stationed in North Jor Dan iraqis in the Irbid area and up to syrians straddling the syrian lebanese Border. Iraq and Syria both have threatened to intervene on the guerrillas Side if Hus Sein tries to liquidate the palestinian movement. But neither the Iraq nor the syrians Are noted warriors. Theirs has been a shrill War of words so far. Hussein s armies Are unlikely to risk a major inter Arab War by launching a frontal assault on them.
