(Occupied West Bank) Israeli troops patrol most Arab cities after days of civil unrest and resignations of 4 from Arab town cncls. Schools closed; stores open in areas. Students and soldiers clashed several times. [Ramallah mayor, Karim KHALAF - believes and supports the PLO.] Film shows Jerusalem on February 13, 1976. Unrest began when Arabs protested Jews praying near mosques on Jerusalem's Temple Mount. Arabs may be encouraged by Pro-PLO decisions at United Nations and Syria's successful hard-line against Israel. Likely west bank Arabs will continue to test strength against Israelis.
