UAE authorities in the Persian Gulf have ordered Palestinians living there to leave within a month, Al Quds al-Arabi reported Friday. No reason was given in the report, but the London-based paper said that the order was given by senior officials. Palestinian parliamentarian Atef Adwan told the paper that the plan was apparently to expel Palestinians, including those born in the area and who have lived there most of their lives. Meanwhile, the Lebanese Al Akhbar newspaper claimed that authorities in the Gulf were also deporting dozens of Lebanese Shi'ites, saying that in recent months, 45 Lebanese businessmen and clerks had been expelled. The paper said no reason was given for the move, but that it appeared to be a security decision.
