situation and the circumstances
of the shootings convinced
Cabinet members that the
border forces had no alterna-
tive but to fire at the poten-
tial border trespassers.
After .hearing the reports, the
leftist Mapam withdrew its pro-
posal for establishment of an
inquiry committee to review the
shootings. A Cabinet statement
stressed that it was the duty of
security forces to prevent illegal
border crossings and to defend
Israel from spies, saboteurs and
murderers. The statement
stressed that documentary evi-
dence had demonstrated that ru-
mors of alleged mutilation of the
bodies of the five Arabs were
spread by elements "hostile to
the state."
"The Cabinet is satisfied that
the security forces acted in ac-
cordance with the law," the
statement said. It was recalled
at the Cabinet meeting that a
member of a kibbutz near the
Gaza Strip was killed when he
failed , to identify himself while
walking near the border.
The Cabinet emphasized that
any Israeli citizen can leave
the country legally and that
the fact that the five Arabs
tried to cross illegally indi-
cated that they were involved
in illegal activities. It was as-

public intelligence and that
they apparently intended to
return to Israel. Israel sources
indicated that UAR intelli-
gence activities have been
stepped up considerably in
recent months.
As life in the Arab towns
which were the centers of pro-
test demonstrations returned to
normal, police began a track-
down of "Nasserite elements"
known to have been behind the
anti - Israel demonstrations. The
suspects, who are believed to be
part of an organized group, and
whose names are known to po-
lice, disappeared from their
homes as soon as the demonstra-
tions were brought under con-
trol.
Some of the organizers of the
demonstrations were hiding in
the hills around Nazareth. They
were detained when they re-
turned to their homes. The lead-
ers of the Communist party in
Nazaret, Toufik Ziad, secretary
of the Nazareth Communist
party and a member of the
Municipal Council, and Loutfi
Zari, a Communist leader in the
Ilabun village, were found hid-
ing and detained on charges of
inciting the demonstrations.
Nazareth shop and restaurant
owners apparently were the main
victims of the disturbances, which
led tourists and Israelis who
come to Nazareth on Sundays
and holidays to cancel such plans
last week.
Both the Mapam and Commu-
nist parties had called on the
Knesset presidium to put de-
mands for a parliamentary probe
of the whole affair on the Knes-
set agenda. The Herut Party
asked that a special session be
convened of the Knesset Foreign
Affairs and Security Committee.
An Arab deputy, Yussef Khamis,
a . member of Mapam, filed a
parliamentiary question to be
answered by the government
when the Knesset reconvenes on
Oct. 4.
The Cabinet, at its weekly
Meeting yesterday, heard a de-
tailed report by Minister of Po-
lice Behor Shitreet and was to
hear from the Chief of Staff on
action taken by the Army in the
situation.
