Yasser Arafat’s Fatah Party has declared a state of emergency in the self-rule areas to deal with possible violence if the Camp David summit ends without agreement. “There is no plan to attack Israel or to harm Israelis, but we are preparing for self-defense,” a Fatah official told Reuters. The Israeli military has been preparing for Palestinian violence should the summit fail.
