Offset Mobilized Terrorism
Mounting terrorist activities have added to the existing tensions and
challenges that will confront Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger when
he resumes his diplomatic talks in the Middle East next week. Israel's army
intelligence units have introduced drastic measures to offset threats and
her diplomatic forces are mobilizing to counteract attacks by Israel's enemies

TEL AVIV (JTA)—The Israeli Cabinet met in special session as a
_ ministerial security committee Wednesday to discuss the rising wave of ter-
rorist activities. A brief announcement said only that Defense Minister Shi-
mon Peres and Chief of Staff Gen. Mordechai Gur reported on security

The dead terrorists were identified as members of Ahmed Jabril's
Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command, the
terrorists gang responsible for the Kiryat Shemona massacre. Security
sources said they were wearing French-made berets with Jabril's insignia,
and were between 25-30 years of age.

it out. He was killed after a brief exchange of fire.
