SUMMARY
-------

1. (U) This cable contains an action request. Please
see paragraph (5).

2. (SBU) Multi-National Force - Iraq (MNF-I) has
provided the Embassy with the following update on the
two Palestinian detainees in Coalition custody named
in Reftel. This update may be passed to
representatives of the Palestinian Authority in its
entirety:

3. (SBU) Jayyab Mahmoud Hasan Ehmedat (ISN No.
106593) has been fully approved for release by the
Iraqi-majority Combined Review and Release Board
(CRRB) and by MNF-I. However, the release of third-
country nationals in Iraq also requires the formal
approval of the Iraqi Prime Minister or Ministry of
Justice. Mr. Ehmedat's release is one of approximately
forty now awaiting MOJ approval; the Palestinian
Mission in Baghdad may wish to contact the Iraqi MOJ
regarding this matter.

4. (SBU) Osama Feysa Mohammed (ISN No. 172700) was
provisionally approved for release on July 11, 2005 by
the CRRB and MNF-I. However, Embassy Baghdad has been
requested to seek confirmation of his employment in
the Palestinian Authority Security Services prior to
his referral to the Iraqi MOJ for final approval.
