Poisoned Whiskey Leads to Arrest of Saboteurs

JERUSALEM (JTA)—A bottle of
poisoned whiskey led to the arrest
of a gang of 30 saboteurs in the
Ramallah and Jerusalem regions,

Israeli security sources disclosed.
The gang includes members of
El Fatah and the Popular Front
for the Liberation of Palestine.
Their apprehension yielded three
caches of machineguns, hand
grenades and high explosives. The
saboteurs are suspected of mur-

dering Taisir Luzia, a prominent

Jerusalem Arab who was poisoned.
They are also accused of throwing

grenades at the Herod Gate in old
Jerusalem and planting explosives

in the license bureau and the

branch office of the Israel Discount
Bank in Ramallah.
According to security sources,
the round-up of the gang came
about accidentally when an official
of the West Bank military govern-
ment was the luncheon guest of a
local Arab dignitary. The guest

key from a bottle that had been

sent to him as a gift. The senders
were traced and ultimately con-
fessed the poison plot and impli-
cated other members of the gang.
Security forces said more arrests
are expected.

Security forces disclosed that
97 Arabs, including nine women,
have been detained as a result
of the exposure of underground
terrorist cells in the Jerusalem
area. According to the officials,
