Breaking new ground, Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Peres said Monday that he would hold a referendum on any final peace agreement with the Palestinians. Coming less than two months before Israeli general elections, Peres' pledge appeared aimed at undecided voters who fear that a Peres government would make too many concessions to the Palestinians. Negotiations on the final status of Jerusalem, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, as well as the future of 144 Jewish settlements, are to begin in May.

Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin's government pledged Monday to hold a national referendum on any major Israeli withdrawal from the Golan Heights as a result of a peace agreement with Syria. Mordechai Gur, the deputy defense minister, told the Israeli Knesset, or Parliament, that Rabin would seek popular approval--in effect, a renewal of the mandate for peace he won in June, 1992, elections--before pulling troops off the strategic plateau.
