Arafat’s “Cease-Fire,” After 6 Weeks: 407 Attacks, 16 Dead, 77 Wounded

ZOA

Background: On the afternoon of June 2, 2001, the international
media reported that Yasir Arafat had ordered his forces to immediately halt
all violence against Israel. U.S.Secretary of State Colin Powell said on
NBC-TV’s “Meet the Press” on June 3, 2001 that Arafat “has a great deal
control” over the violence and, in addition, “he has the moral authority as
the leader of the Palestinians–people look to him for leadership, that
will carry great weight.”

During the first five weeks following the announcement of Arafat’s
“cease-fire,” there were 348 terrorist attacks against Israelis, in which
13 people were killed and 64 were wounded.
