A senior Palestinian official said Saturday that he has received a pledge from Iraqi President Jalal Talabani to protect Palestinian refugees living in Iraq. The Palestinian president's senior security adviser, Jibril Rajoub, said that he asked Talabani during a meeting on Wednesday for better protection for Palestinians, many of whom have been killed, kidnapped or displaced amid mounting violence in Iraq. "His Excellency assured me that the violations against Palestinians were individual acts and the government has promised to ensure protection and safe places for Palestinians in Iraq," Rajoub told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. Last month, the UN refugee agency said nearly 700 Palestinian refugees were stranded at the Iraq-Syrian border and living in inhumane and insecure conditions in the desert as they were fleeing violence in Iraq.
