Belgians Asked to Oust PLO as Europe Tightens Its Security

charged that the attack was
"an Israeli provocation."
Immediately after the at-
tack, the normally strict se-
curity measures at Amster-
dam's Schipol Airport were
tightened further. The same
was true at the Geneva and
Zurich airports where Swiss
police reinforced the reg-
ular security guards. A
police spokesman in Geneva
said emergency security

into effect there.

PLO officials have been
invited to official events in
Jordan recently and the
PLO has reopened its office
in Amman, which was
closed in 1970 after the
"Black September" purge of
Palestinian terrorists by
the Jordanian army.
These developments coin-
cide with intensified ter-
rorist activity in Israel and
abroad aimed at Egyptian
and American as well as Is-
raeli targets. A number of
booby-trapped envelopes
addressed to Israel were
found in West Germany and
one exploded at the
Frankfurt Airport recently.
In Paris, Jewish finan-
cial institutions and a
Jewish-owned restau-
rant were bomb targets.
The perpetrators are be-
lieved to be members of
the Syrian-sponsored Al
Saiqa terrorist group. Is-
raeli offices were at-
tacked in Ankara and Is-
tanbul, Turkey.
Three shells were fired at
the U.S. Embassy in Beirut.
A building housing the Is-
raeli Embassy in Nicosia,
Cyprus and an Egyptian
airlines travel agency there
were also bomb targets a
week ago.
The Israeli navy captured
a freighter owned by El
Fatah that was ferrying a
terrorist group on a sabot-
age mission in Israel earlier
this month. With increased
vigilance by sea, terrorists
are now attempting to carry
out attacks inside Israel ,
through agenst on the West
Bank. They are believed re-
sponsible for the fatal bomb-
ing in the Carmel market in
Tel Aviv last Tuesday and

the earlier bombing in the
Lod marketplace.
