PA leader Yasser Arafat made several personnel changes in his government yesterday, although Israeli diplomatic sources say that this is \"just a trick by Arafat to show that he is making reforms while he still can.\" Arafat fired Jibril Rajoub, head of the PA Preventative Security Force in Judea and Samaria. Former Jenin governor Zohir Manasra will replace Rajoub. Other leading officials given the boot by Arafat include Police Chief Ghazi Jabali, Civil Defense Leader Mahmoud Abu Marzouk, and Toufig Tirawi. Jabali will be replaced by his deputy, while Abu Marzouk’s position will be filled by a former Arafat military aide. The Israeli source said that the changes are immaterial, \"as these are organizations that are infected by terrorism, and there will be no change as long as Arafat is still in charge.\"
