Palestine Arabs Seek Direct Contact with Israeli Government; Ignore King Abdullah

Reports here tonight stated that Arabs in the “triangle area,” or central front, had approached members of tie United Nations Conciliation Commission for Palestine, asking them to make direct contact on their behalf with the Israeli Government.

The Arabs in that area, which is occupied by Iraqi troops, were represented as wanting to discuss with Israel final armistice lines there as well as future plans covering villages which are to fall under Israeli jurisdiction. They were also said to have requested the contact with the Tel Aviv Government without first applying to sing Abdullah of Transjordan, whose troops will soon take over control of the central front.
