ments, the bank said.
Israel is one of the countries
where foreign residents sometimes
hold large sums of "hot" money
because of the high interest rates
usually paid in this country. Most
deposits as these are in United
States dollars. However, due to
the recent developments in the
international money market, some
depositors have switched their ac-
counts to West German marks.
The West German government
has announced that it will no
longer accept this type of money

Israeli Officer,
2 Saboteurs Killed
in Day-Long Clash

Brings A Man To

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Two mem-
bers of an eight-man El Fatah
saboteur unit and an Israeli army
officer were killed during a 24-hour
battle west of Jericho which ended
Friday morning.
Lt. Col. Tzvi Offer, who headed
the patrol which pursued and
trapped the intruders, was fatally
wounded in the encounter and died
before a helicopter could bring him
to a hospital. He was 37 and the
father of four.
The clash began when the patrol
sighted movement in the area and
opened fire. The patrol members
immediately mounted the surround-
ing hilltops and demanded, through
loudspeakers, that the marauders
surrender. When no answer was re-
ceived, the patrol members enter-
ed the area and began combing it.
The hunt was halted at nightfall
and resumed the next morning in
a cave-to-cave search. Two bodies
were found, along with an injured
intruder. As the search was con-
tinued, fire was suddenly opened
from one of the caves, and Lt. Col.
Offer was mortally wounded. A
huge quantity of arms and explo-
sives, as well as Jordanian bank-
notes and civilian clothes were
found, indicating the intruders
planned a lengthy series of sabo-
tage acts.

abstinence is a greater evil than
