A terrorist plan was afoot to assassinate Prime Minister Ariel Sharon during one of his visits to the Old City of Jerusalem. Four Arabs are accused of participation in the plot, according to a charge sheet submitted this morning in the Beit El Military Court. The four acted originally on behalf of Fatah, and later for Fatah-Jihad. The charges specify that the assassination was to take place from a window of one of the four\'s homes in the Old City. The GSS forbids Sharon from visiting his home in what is known as the Moslem Quarter of the Old City, in light of the threats on his life.
