Israel Warns of 'Full Retribution'
for Arab Attacks on European Offices

JERUSALEM (JTA) — The Is-
raeli Foreign Ministry made it
clear Tuesday that Israel will hold
the Arab states sheltering terror-
ist organizations responsible for
the bombings of Israel offices in
Europe Monday. A statement by
the ministry spokesman noted
that "the terrorists, the head-
quarters of whose organizations
are in the Arab countries, enjoy
the openly-declared support of the
Arab governments."
- The statement quoted the one
made Monday by Transport Min-
ister Moshe Carmel who describ-
ed the attacks as an attempt to
sever Israeli's communications
with the rest of the world and
warned the terrorists "of full re-
tribution." The foreign ministry
spokesman said that the bombings
would "further open the eyes of
the world with regard to the nature
and methods of Arab warfare." He
promised that the attacks would
not succeed in shaking Israel's
stamina.
Teen-age Arab boys tossed
bombs at Israeli embassies in
Bonn and the Hague and at the
El Al office in Brussels in an ap-
parently coordinated attack, for
which the Popular Front for the
Liberation of Palestine, a guer-
rilla group. took credit. There were

linked the European bombings
with the continuing violence in the
Middle East and deplored the
spread of terrorism to other na-
tions. They said it was a poor way
"to grope for a settlement." Offi-
cials were reluctant to discuss se-
curity precautions for Israeli diplo-
matic installations in the U.S. But
it seemed apparent that measures
were being intensified.

some U.S. cities have responded
to requests from Jewish and Israel-
oriented organizations, including
airline offices, for increased sur-
veillance. Law enforcement agen-
cies declined public comment on
reports that undercover investiga-
tions are proceeding among groups
of known Arab agitators in the
U.S.

pects were arrested.

A guard in The Hague cap-
tured an Arab teen-ager with a
grenade in his pocket after an-
other grenade aimed at an open
window in the Israeli Embassy
building exploded in the doorway
of the adjacent residence in the
embassy's first secretary, Shraga
Tzur.
Dutch police guarded the El
Al office in Amsterdam. and police
reinforcements were sent to Schip-
hoal Airport where passengers
hoarding El Al and Royal Dutch
Airline (ELM) flights for Tel Aviv
were searched for weapons to avert
a possible new aerial hijacking.
The Netherlands' chief of protocol
'phoned the Israeli ambassador.
Shimshon Arad, to convey Foreign
Minister Josef Luns' message of
shock and outrage over the bomb-
ing of the Israeli Embassy.
A spokesman for the Front said
in Amman that the attacks were
carried out by the Front's Ho
Chi Minh" unit. The guerrillas
were described as "lion cubs," all
teen-agers. The Front is the same
organization that claimed credit
for hijacking a TWA airliner to
Damascus on Aug. 29. That act
was carried out by two Arab com-
mandos who styled themselves
members of the "Che Guevara"
unit. The identification of Arab
terrorists with heroes of the radi-
cal left-wing indicated to observers
here that the Arabs are trying to
mobilize militant leftists. especially

In Frankfurt. police officials
said Tuesday that a fire which
broke out in the Egyptian tourist
office Monday night may have
been a diversionary tactic by Arab
terrorists responsible for the gre-
nade attack on the Israel embassy
in Bad Godesburg near Bonn on
Monday. The blaze caused little
damage. and no one was hurt.
The police said that an identi-
fication disc attached to a brace-
let worn by the youth arrested for
throwing a grenade at the em-
bassy bore the initials of the Popu-
lar Front for the Liberation of Pal-
estine, a number-4291—and the
name of the youth, Talaat Has-
san Ismail. He is 16 years old.
In Brussels, police said they
were continuing the search for an
Arab youth who fled after bombing

client who were injured in the
bombing were reported to be mak-
ing a good recovery.
