El Fatah Claims Credit for Fatal Bombing of Terminal
THE DETROIT JEWISH HEWS
LONDON (JTA)—An El Fatah
leader claimed credit for last
week's fatal bomb explosions in
the Tel Aviv bus terminal and
warned that they were "the start
of more and bigger operations
within our occupied homeland."
The boast was made by Abu
Iyad, El Fatah's No. 2 man, in a
statement published in the guerril.

The bomb blasts at midday last
Friday killed a 26-year-old Israeli
student and injured 34 other per-
More than 1,200 Arabs were
rounded up for questioning, and
nine are being held as prime
suspects. Abu Iyad claimed that
"the Tel Aviv operation" and
future stepped-up raids were
possible because the trace be-
tween the comamndos and King
Hussein "provides us with a
better atmosphere in Jordan and
we can operate more freely."
Meanwhile, Jordanian troops are
reportedly patrolling the borders
to prevent hit-and-run assaults and
shellings of Israeli settlements
which could bring Israeli reprisal
attacks and which would violate
the cease fire that Jordan has ac-
cepted. As a result, the guerrillas
appear to be resorting to infiltra-
tion tactics and terrorist attacks in
Israeli population centers.
Mass roundups began within
minutes after two small bombs
concealed in trash cans exploded.
One of the bombs claimed the life
of Yehezkel Hamra, a 26-year-old
accounting student who emigrated
to Israel from Iraq in 1951. Thirty-
four other persons were injured,

three of them seriously, but all
were off the danger list Sunday.
The bombs, consisting of 250
grams each of dynamite, were
timed to explode at mid-day when
crowds in the bus terminal were
at a peak.
Police Minister Shlomo Hillel
said the terrorists responsible for
the act must have known that
there were many Arabs as well as
Jews In the bus terminal at the
time and that the outrage would
lead to attacks on innocent Arabs
by certain "hot-headed people."
Police in fact had to intervene
against mobs who began attacking
Arabs or anyone who looked like
an Arab in the terminal area af-
ter the blasts.
Police said the crime was in-
tended as a sheer act of terror not
only against Israelis but against
the 30,000 Arabs who come to Is-
rael for employment each day
from the occupied territories.

under their feet.
