But there was widespread jubilation among the Palestinians at I'. _• murder of a man they considered one of their chief foes The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, whose hijacking of three airliners to Jordan led to the 1970 civil war, said Tell's death was "a warning to everyone who is an enemy of our nation." Palestinian students, women and workers' groups said they sent a cable to Egyptian President Aowar Sadat appealing for the release of the three assassins "who performed a national duty by killing one of the traitors who plotted against our people." Jordanian Arabs under Israeli occupation expressed fear that more warfare is imminent between the guerrillas and the Jordanian army. Dov Yinou, the Israeli state radio's Arab affairs expert, said Hussein may decide to avenge Tell's death with a new anti-Palestinian onslaught, and commented: "The Palestinians have don* U again. Tney've thrown the entire Arab world into distress with one extreme act."
