Rocket Attacks Force Retaliation

(Continued from Page 1)
recent spate of rocket
attacks launched from
Lebanon," State Depart-
ment spokesman Hodding
Carter said. "We condemn
those attacks."
Carter said he had no
comment on reports of
Israeli artillery fire at
points in Lebanon from
which the attacks were
apparently launched.
Responding to questions on
the new round of fighting
between Palestinians and
Christians in southern Leba-
non and Israeli support for
the Christians, Carter said,
"We continue, as in the
past, to urge the parties on
both' sides to show restraint
and are working to that end.
We hope the cease-fire can
be reinstated."
Carter said contacts- by
U.S. officials with the par-
ties is, continuing through
the American embassies in
Beirut and Tel Aviv:
On Wednesday, State
Department spokesman
John Trattner again urged
restraint by all parties, but
pointedly refused to con-
demn Israel's air strike.
A 35-year-old woman,
Rivka Loupo, was killed and
five persons were injured
when terrorists launched a
volley of Katyusha rockets
at Nahariya Tuesday after-
noon. The attack also
caused widespread damage
to homes and vehicles in the
seaside resort.
The attack was the second

of the day (an earlier one
did not cause any casu-
alties) and the third since
two persons were killed by a
rocket attack Sunday after-
noon. Two of the injured
Tuesday were children.
Sunday's victims were
identified as Louis Levy, 45,
and Shmuel Mintz, 33. The
112 mm. rocket shells, fired
from the Lebanese border,
exploded at 4 p.m. local
time near a group of work-
ers who had just left their
factory and were waiting
for a bus.
Israeli artillery opened
fire on the source of the
attack. It was the first
attack on an Israeli town by
Lebanese-based terrorists
since the cease-fire went
into effect in southern Leba-
non Sept. 26.
Israeli and Lebanese
army officers have been
meeting at regular intervals
to work out plans for a
Lebanese army take-over of
terrorist strongpoints in
south Lebanon as required
by the terms of the cease-
fire. Israeli units along the
border are under orders to
exercise utmost restraint in
the hope that the Lebanese
will be able to prevail upon
the terrorists to pull out of
their positions.
There is an extremist ele-
ment among the Palesti-
nians that has been defying
the cease-fire. They are
abetted by PLO chieftain
Yasir Arafat who declared
in Sidon on Sunday that


Palestinian forces will not
withdraw because that
would mean surrender to
the Israelis. So far, the
rehabilitated Lebanese
regular army has not made
its appearance in south
The attack on Nahariya
was justified by the terror-
ists on grounds that Israeli
artillery shelled the Moslem
stronghold of Nabatiyeh in
southern Lebanon over the
weekend in support of Chris-
tian forces. Israel has
denied intervening in the
latest Moslem-Christian

In an earlier incident,
three Israeli bus drivers
were injured last Friday
when a bomb exploded in
the Egged bus company
office in Jerusalem. The
bomb was concealed in a
plastic shopping bag in a
bus that had just discharged
its passengers. The driver
assumed a passenger had
forgotten the bag and took it
into the office when it
exploded, injuring him and
two other drivers.
A small bomb exploded in
a trash bin at the Petah
Tikva bus terminal Monday
morning. There - were no
In another incident, an
Israeli naval unit sank a
fishing boat this week off
Rosh Hanikra on the Israeli-
Lebanese border. The three
occupants of the boat had
opened fire on the Israeli
naval craft.

Histadrut Parley Scene of Labor, Likud Rift

The 23rd convention of His-
tadrut opened in Jerusalem
Monday and immediately
took on the aspects of a bat-
tleground between Labor
and Likud over the govern-
ment's controversial new
economic program.
Premier Menahem Begin,
who had been- scheduled to
attend the opening ceremo-*
vies, was notable in his
absence, an indication of the
bitter feelings that have
developed between the pre-
mier and the trade union.
federation which has
encouraged strikes and
work stoppages during the
past week to protest the eco-
nomic measures.
Even Israel's universally
respected President Eph-
raim Katzir, ,whose office is
non-political, was not
immune to heckling. When
he said it was only natural
for Histadrut to struggle for
a more equitable distribu-
tion of the economic bur-
dens, Likud delegates inter-
rupted his speech, shouting
that such remarks exceeded
his authority.
Histadrut Secretary Gen-
eral Yertfham Meshel, the
main speaker of the eve-
ning, was also interrupted
by heckling. He declared
that Histadrut did its utmost
to reach an understanding
with the new government,
but would insist that the
wage-earner must not be
made the victim of the new
economic policy and that his
living standards must not

Meshel greeted the presi-
dent and the ministers pre-
sent who "represent the
government" but did not
refer to Begin's demonstra-
tive absence. Sources close
to the premier said later
that Begin felt that aspects
of Histadrut's campaign
were against him personally
and was "insulted."
Begin was quoted as
saying "Histadrut delegates
yelled 'Begin go home' so I
stayed at the premier's
office where the people
elected me to be."
The deep rift between the
Labor and Likud elements'
of Histadrut was empha-
sized at the end of the open-
ing session. When the dele-
gates rose to sing. the
"internationale," the Social-
ist anthem, the Likud con-
tingent walked out.
Meanwhile, about 8,000
workers, mainly civil serv-
ants and municipal

employes, demonstrated
outside the prime minister's
office Sunday to protest the
government's new economic
policy and the sharp
increases in living costs.

to be held

Strikes and work-stop-
pages occurred Sunday in
Haifa, Kiryat Shemona and
Afuleh, but were only partly
effective. Some Haifa
municipal workers stayed
away from their fobs but
others went to work as
usual. In Afuleh 7,000 work-
ers signed a petition to
Begin asking for an
audience. But most of them
ignored the strike call.
