      Palestinians have already begun to \"perform false manipulations,\" the IDF officially reports, to welcome the UN committee due to arrive tonight to investigate the Jenin battles. The PA has formed a special \"public affairs committee\" that will supervise \"preparing the camp for the UN committee\'s arrival.\" The IDF Spokesman makes it quite clear: \"The Palestinian committee does not hesitate to use acts of deceit and fraud.\"

      Excerpts from the IDF announcement:
      \"The most appalling fraud is the matter of the dead bodies in the camp. The
      Palestinians have begun moving [previously buried] bodies… into a \'mass grave\' of casualties of the operation… 26 casualties from Operation Defensive Shield are buried in the grave, but the bodies recently added bring the number up to 50 bodies. This, in order to display a larger number of Palestinian casualties that were allegedly killed during the fighting in the camp…
      \"As part of their attempt to magnify the distress of living in the camp in the eyes of the UN representatives, the Palestinian committee asked the camp residents whose homes were damaged or destroyed [and who are now renting homes in the city of Jenin] to return to the refugee camp during daytime (the UN committee operating hours) and sit inside tents, after which they will return to their apartments in the city…
      \"Another request asked of the residents of Jenin was to hide any possible military evidence during the committee\'s stay in the camp, such as uniforms, weapons…
      \"It is known that following the withdrawal of IDF forces… 21 innocent people were injured from the explosive charges that the Palestinians placed and were scattered in the area.
      \"The cynical use that the Palestinians make of sensitive humanitarian issues for false and twisted propaganda testifies to the deception characterizing Palestinian public affairs as can be seen in many publications regarding what happened in the Jenin refugee camp.\"
