Al-Fatah dissidents list demands for ending revolt

The leader of Al-Fatah Palestinian guerrillas rebelling against leader Yasser Arafat said Wednesday the revolt would continue unless Mr. Arafat bowed to their demands.

Col. Saed Musa, known as Abu Musa, listed these demands:

1. ''A clear political stance vis-a-vis the Reagan (Middle East peace) plan, the Fez (Arab peace) plan, and (Palestinian) confederation with Jordan.''

2. ''Collective leadership (of Fatah) and elimination of singular rule.''

3. ''An evaluation of revolutionary conduct, that is, elimination of personal gain from the Palestinian revolution.''

Musa denied Arafat's claim that Syrian soldiers and tanks had helped the rebels. The Syrian government also denied the claim.
