The kingdom of Jordan, implementing a decision by King Hussein to sever its ties to the West Bank, will cut off all funds and relinquish all responsibility for government services in the Israeli-occupied territories, senior Jordanian sources said Monday. The decision, disclosed one day after Hussein announced he was ceding Jordan's claims to the West Bank to the Palestine Liberation Organization, was expected to deal a severe economic blow to the territory's 850,000 Arab inhabitants.
