The deportation or expulsion of Arab inhabitants from the West Bank and Gaza is one of several measures used by Israeli military authorities to deal with what they term "incitement to subversion."

Palestinian representatives said Friday they want to delay the next round of the Middle East peace talks, scheduled to begin Tuesday, until Israel agrees to expedite the return of Palestinian deportees and ease restrictions on the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

Masked Palestinians wielding axes killed an Arab farmer suspected of cooperating with Israel, witnesses said Thursday. Other masked men attacked Palestinian laborers they accused of defying a strike order and injured three. The attacks reflected growing divisions among Palestinians over the future of their 8 1/2-month uprising. Meanwhile, Israeli aircraft attacked a Palestinian guerrilla base near the southern Lebanese port city of Sidon, the army command said.

PLO leader Yasser Arafat met with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in Cairo, then flew to Amman for talks with Jordanian officials as key Arab states continued to hold back their delegations to the conference, scheduled to begin Tuesday in Washington.
