Israel Hints at Action Against Countries
Aiding Terrorist Attacks on Shipping

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Implied
threats of "action" gainst any
country aiding and abetting at-
tacks on Israeli shipping in inter-
national waters emerged here in
the aftermath of last Friday's ba-
zooka attack on the Israel-bound
Liberian tanker Coril Sea in the
Straits of Bab el,Mandab.
According to well - informed
sources, the Israel government is
resorting to political measures for
the time being to prevent a repe-
tition of the incident-
But most cabinet ministers are
reported to be convinced that the
efficacy of this approach is ex-
tremely limited and that "the
principal action to assure free
navigation has to be taken by the
security organs," the sources said.
The Jewish Telegraphic Agen-
cy learned that when news of
the attack reached the govern.
ment last Friday, Israel ap-
proached "an important friendly
Western power" and was ad-
vised by it to delay announcing
the incident to give Liberia a
chance to announce it. The Li-
berian government made no an-
nouncement over the weekend,
and Israel broke the news Sun-
day.

The tanker was steaming
through the narrow channel west
of Perim island when the attack
occurred. Perim reportedly has
been fortified by South Yemen.
The Greek captain of the Li-
berian tanker Coral Sea provided
an eye-witness account Monday
night of the bazooka attack on his
vessel last Friday at the southern
end of the Red Sea, bound for
Eilat, with a cargo of oil.
Capt. Markos Muskoss, 40, said
he was able to observe clearly the
four men on the attacking motor-
boat, who fired nine bazooka
shells, some of which hit his ship.
The Coral Sea dropped anchor
off Sharm el Sheikh at the en-
trance to the Gulf of Aqaba Tues-
day night. She was visited by-Is-
rael's transport minister, Simon
Peres and senior ministry officals
and by officials of Cargo Ships El
Yam Ltd., Israeli agents for the
tanker's owners.
Peres told the captain and his
crew, "You are soldiers of the
international community, safe-
guarding the civilian routes of the
world." He sent the ship a crate
of champagne for the crew to
celebrate their escape, unharmed
from the attack.
Capt- Muskoss said he ob-
served three high-speed fishing
boats cruising in the waters and
then a motorboat which circled
his ship once and opened fire.
He said the motorboat made off
after setting a fire aboard the
the Coral Sea.
Capt. Markoss said it took about
an hour to extinguish the blaze
and put hs ship in order.
According to the captain, the
fishing boats apepared to be cov-
ering the motorboat's escape.
Israeli circles cited the incident
as one more reason why Israel
should never withdraw from the
Sharm el-Sheikh strongpoint, about
1,000 miles from the Straits of
Bab el-Mandab.
Should Israel give it up, the
