Israeli. Forces Strike at Guerrillas
North to South; MIG Shot Down

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

TEL AVIV—Israeli tanks, artil-
lery and air force jets struck back
at saboteur and guerrilla bases in
Jordanian territory in separate
actions Monday night and Tuesday
morning which covered the entire
front from the Beisan Valley in the
north to the desert region south of
the Dead Sea.
A Syrian MIG-21 was shot down
Wednesday by Israeli fighter
planes in a mid-day dogfight that
developed over Kuneitra in the
occupied Golan Heights after two
Syrian planes flew over Israel-held
territory. The second Syrian MIG
apparently fled before the Israeli
interceptors arrived.
The other crashed over Syrian
territory. The pilot was seen bail-
ing out, a military spokesman re-
Mar Ruppin in the Beisan Val-
ley came under heavy mortar
attack from Jordanian territory
Tuesday night for the first time
since Israel's Dec. 3 air strike
at Iraqi troop concentrations
across the Jordan River.
Israeli forces returned the fire,
and no casualties were reported on
the Israeli side, though three
homes in Mar Ruppin were slight-
ly damaged. Adult settlers spent
the night in bomb shelters. Chil-
dren have been sleeping in shelters
for months as a matter of routine

ed guerrilla positions in the remote
Arava district of the Negev Mon-
day night, following rocket and
mortar attacks on Neot Hakikar
and the Dead Sea potash works. A
military spokesman said the re-
gion has become the principal base
for saboteurs since winter floods
have made the Jordan River im-
A heavily armed band of sabo-
teurs was intercepted and captured
by an Israeli patrol in the Arava
region last week. Two were killed
and six taken alive in a fight.
The gang, believed to be affil-
iated with the Palestine Liberation
Organization, crossed into Israel
with two guides and several cam-

els loaded with high explosives. A
military spokesman said they were
headed for the Hebron area when
Israeli forces surrounded them in
a gully. They refused to surrender.
The Israeli patrol seized a
quantity of "button" mines and
anti-vehicle mines, Russian-made
Kalatchnllmf assault rifles,
Czech-made submachine guns
and, for the first time, a French-
made weapon, a nine millimeter
mortar. A military spokesman
said the capture probably avert-
ed a major act of sabotage aimed
at civilians like last November's
Mahane Yehuda market bomb-
ing in Jerusalem.
Tanks and artillery were brought
into action Tuesday morning fol-
lowing three attacks on Israeli
patrols in the Beisan area and
southeast of Lake Tiberias. The
guerrillas used bazookas, mortars
and automatic weapons in attacks
in the Ashdod Yaacov area and
near the Yarmuk River. Jordan-
ians opened fire Tuesday morning
on Israeli forces south of the Dead
Sea. The fire was returned and the
attack was silenced without casual-
ties on the Israeli side. Israelis
and Jordanians exchanged fire at
the Damiya Bridge Monday night
after an attack on an Israeli patrol
with Katyusha rocket-launchers.
Israeli security circles expressed
concern over the discovery of a
new French-made submachine gun,
the "Mat," in the possession of
captured Arab saboteurs last week.
The weapon is standard equipment
for the French army and is not
supposed to be for sale.
Sources here said the Arabs
may have obtained the weapon
through private channels, but
there was a possibility that they
were supplied directly by French
An Israeli soldier was killed Feb.
3 while on duty in the Golan
Heights. Jordanians fired on Israeli
forces in the vicinities of Kfar
Ruppin and Shaar Hagolan.
A life sentence was imposed
Monday on one of a group of seven
East Jerusalem Arabs found guilty
by a military tribunal of planting
hand grenades in downtown Jeru-

7 'Righteous Gentiles' Receive
Medallions for Rescue of Jews

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

NEW YORK—Israel's medallions
for the "righteous" will be pre-
sented Feb. 20 to seven non-Jews
who rescued and sheltered Euro-
pean Jews during World War II
at grave risk to their own lives.
Three of the awards will be post-
humous. They will be conferred
by Israel Consul General Reha-
yearn Amir at ceremonies to be
held at the American-Israel Cultu-
ral Foundation here.
The medallions and accompany-
ing certificates will be awarded on
behalf of the Yad Vashem, the
heroes and martyrs remembrance
authority in Jerusalem, which docu-
mented each case on the basis of
evidence supplied by surviving
witnesses now scattered all over
the world. The medallions are in-
scribed with the talmudic dictum.
"One who saves a human life
saves, as it were, a whole world."
The recipients will be: Wladyslav
Wojcik, a Pole who became a fugi-
tive from police for two years in
order to provide shelter and care
for a 3-year-old Jewish girl whose
mother entrusted her to his care
before she was reported to a death
camp; Alexander Roslan of War-
saw, who sheltered three children

throughout the war at great risk
and hardship to his own family;
Hama Kiss, the overseer of a
forced labor detachment, whose
humane treatment of Jewish pri-
soners was responsible for the sur-
vival of most of them on a 1000-
mile march from Budapest to the
Russian border.
Also, the late Mme. Blanche Mot_
lino, a French woman who raised
funds in the United States to help
Jewish scholars after the fall of
France and who later risked her
life sheltering Jews sought by the
Gestapo and Vichy authorities; the
late Anton Uszczanowski and his
wife, Jadwiga, who sheltered sev-
eral Jewish families in Poland
during the Nazi occupation, for
which Mr. Uszczanowski was even-
tually executed.
Mrs. Julia Markus Wolfinger,
who sheltered a family of eight
Jewish survivors of the Storry
Ghetto in Poland in her home,
which was near a German military
base; and the late Ignazy Lubo-
czynski, a lieutenant colonel in the
Annie Krajovia in Poland, who
saved Jews from death by re-
cruiting them into his unit and by
supplying them with false docu-

salem last August. The others re-
ceived sentences of from 15 to 30
years in prison.
The ring leader of the gang,
Noeff Al Zahro, drew the maxi-
mum sentence. The sentences
were decided by a majority vote
among the judges. One recom-
mended capital punishment as a
deterrent to terrorist acts, though
the prosecution had not asked for

newsmen following his election as
chairman of the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization, said armed force
was the only solution to the Arab-
Israel dispute for the Palestinians
and ruled out "all political solu-
tions." The semi-official Cairo
newspaper Al Ahram commented
that Arafat's orders would be the
topic of meetings in refugee camps
in Jordan. The PLO was easily

Six-Day War by Israeli forces. It

Israeli police arrested nine
Arab high school boys and eight
girls in East Jerusalem Monday
when they attempted to orga-
nize a demonstration. Police said
the youngsters were instigators
of an anti-Israel demonstration
that was dispersed before it
could get started.
The deaths of two Arab boys,
ages 9 and 16, and injuries to 10
other Arabs, when a grenade was
thrown at an Israel army truck,
shortly after Israel Defense Min-
ister Moshe Dayan left a riot-torn
Gaza area, last week, still is a
subject of deep concern. It is
charged that the grenade was
thrown by Arab terrorists who now
seek to blame the death of Arabs
at their hands upon Israelis.
Israel Seeking to Buy
New Arms From England?
LONDON (JTA)—A meeting here
last week between Israel's Deputy
Defense Minister Gen. Zvi Tzur
and Britain's minister of defense,
Denis Healey, has given rise to
reports that Israel is seeking to
buy new armaments in Britain.
The military attache at the Israel
Embassy here confirmed that Gen.
Tzur had met with Healey and
with a number of other British
high officials.
He refused to comment on re-
ported arms purchases but said
the conversations covered "a num-
ber of issues relating to the Middle
East in general and Anglo-Israeli
relations in particular.
The London Times military cor-
respondent said Wednesday that
the defense ministry confirmed
that the meeting took place. He
noted that Israel is a "good cus-
tomer" for British arms, and with
the British army replacing its Cen-
turion tanks with Chieftains, there
are Centurions available for sale
to Israel.

Commons Gives Anti-Genocide
Bill Second Reading Leading
to Convention Ratification
LONDON (JTA).— An anti-geno-
cide bill was given an unopposed
second reading in the House of
Commons preparatory to ratifica-
tion of the United Nations Geno-
cide Convention of 1948. During
debate earlier, Labor MP Edward
Lyons said it was depressing that
neither the Soviet Union nor the
United States had passed a bill
like the one before Commons.

Britain Stays Out of Bid for Nazis' Extradition

LONDON — (JTA) — A gov-

to Brazil and Uruguay for the ex-
tradition of Nazi war criminals

Mulley said, in reply to a question
