The PLO agreed Thursday to dismantle its only power base near Israel and ship its heavy arms abroad under a peace accord that will help Lebanese President Elias Hrawi gain control of turbulent southern Lebanon. The pact ended four days of fighting between government forces and Palestine Liberation Organization guerrillas who refused to withdraw from hilltop strongholds, used as launch points for attacks against Israel since the early 1970s.

Palestinian guerrillas fought desperate battles against Lebanese army troops Wednesday after fleeing hilltop positions to the confines of two refugee camps in Sidon. The battles around the camps at Ein el Hilwa and Miye ou Miye moved the conflict to within deadly range of both Lebanese and Palestinian civilians. Hospital sources said at least 18 people, many of them civilians, were killed and 35 were wounded in Wednesday's battles. However, few families appeared ready to flee to safer areas.
