Militia, Israelis Attack PLO Terrorists

.

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Two
Palestinian terrorists were
captured while attempting
to infiltrate into Israel from
Lebanon last week, an Is-
raeli army spokesman - an-
nounced.
- The army had earlier re-
ported that a terrorist had
been killed and an Israeli
soldier wounded in a clash
on the border in a central
sector of the Israel-
,ebanese border. Two other
2rrorists were said to have
escaped.
The spokesman has now
disclosed that a group of five
members of the Fatah ter-
- rorist organization had at-
tempted to break through
the border fence near Zarit.
Meanwhile, the army is
keeping a close watch on
the Lebanese border, fol-
111wing heavy Syrian
_„--11 selling of the Christian
enclave in southern .
Lebanon, some hours
after Israel's raid into
Lebanon on Dec. 17.

Officials tend to regard
the Syrian shelling as a
one-time _affair and does not
herald a serious deterriora-
tion of the situation. The
three. Syrian soldiers killed
during the Israeli operation
were outside the area in
which the Syrian army,
forming the Arab
peacekeeping force between
Lebanese Moslems and
Christians in Lebanon,
usually operate; according
to Israeli sources.

The forces of Lebanese
Major Saad Haddad
launched an unprecedented
raid on a number of PLO
basis in un-controlled areas
in southern Lebanon on
Dec. -16.
The militia attacked six
villages in the strip con-
trolled by UNIFIL along the
Israel-Lebanon border area
from the east all the way
west to the Mediterranean.
Eight terrorists and their
collaborators were killed.
Twelve houses were blown
up. The houses were used by
the terrorists as staging
posts for raids into Israel or
the villages in the border
area controlled by the
militia.

At one of the targets,
the village of Barashit,
the militia encountered
PLO terrorists inside the
houses. The militia say
that in the fight which
developed eight ter-
rorists were killed. The
militia suffered no
casualties. Barashit is in
the area controlled by the
Irish command of UN-
IFIL.

Major Haddad said the
raid was held in retaliation
for an increase in PLO ac-
tivity against the south
Lebanese population. Their
villages have been shelled,
there was increased PLO in-
filtration, and mines had
been planted on the _local
roads.
Last week, three south

Lebanese citizens were kil-
led when their vehicle went
over a mine. On top of that
the PLO recently began con-
fiscating farm produce sent
by the villagers for market-
ing in Beirut and even kid-
napped farmers at road
blocks, Haddad charged.
Some of them were held
for several days and were
released only when Haddad
shelled PLO bases.
Israel estimates that
there are 700 PLO ter-
rorists-inside the UNIFIL
buffer zone, in addition to
the 6,000 just to the north.
Haddad charged that the
terrorists were operating
under the umbrella of
UNIFIL protection. UN-
IFIL denies this charge,
and said it had been in-
tercepting PLO -activity
regularly. Only last Sun-
day a spokesman voted;
UNIFIL stopped 16 ter-
rorists and disarmed
them.
One Israeli corporal was
killed in the Dec. 17 raid
and three soldiers woulded.
Ten to 15 Arab terrorists
were killed and military
equipment destroyed, the
army reported.
The targets included
permanent camps of the ter-
rorists. Paratroopers and
Golani Regiment troops
struck in line with a de-
clared Israeli policy of hit-
ting the PLO centers consis-
tently and not merely in re-
tribution for specific ter-
rorist attacks.

S. Africa OKs Israel Bond Sales

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
South Africa has agreed to
allow its nationals to pur-
chase State of Israel Bonds
and has lifted restrictions
on investments in Israel by
South Africans it was an-
nounced last week at the
end of a two-day Israel visit
by South Africa's Finance
Minister Owen Horwood.
The permission given for Is-
rael Bonds constitutes an
excemption from Pretoria's
strict controls on the export
of its Rands.

Israel Status
Improved Zipori

NEW YORK (JTA) — Is-
rael's political and military
.status has improved tre-
mendously and there "is
much going on in the world
that is in her favor,” Mor-
dechai Zipori, Israel's De-
nay Defense Minister, told
300 guests at the Diamond
Key Dinner here of Emunah
Women of America.
Citing such factors as the
,urrent geopolitical situa-
tion in the Middle East, the
foreign policy views of
President-elect Reagan, the
establishment of 85 new
settlements in Judea and
Samaria and the continued
strength of Diaspora Jewry,
Zipori urged his audience to
be heartened rather than
discouraged, by recent
events in the Middle East.

He pointed specifically to
the growing rifts among the
Arab states as particularly
favorable for Israel.

The subjects discussed
and the agreements reached
were disclosed at a joint
press conference by Hor-
wood and his Israeli host;
Finance Minister Yigal
Hurwitz. They told report-
ers that Israel Bond sales
would be permitted up to a
total of $25 million for
three-year periods and
South African investors in
Israel will be permitted to
conduct their transactions
at the official rate of ex-
change in Pretoria which is
30 percent higher than the
world rate on the Rand. This
will giver the investors a
substantially higher re-
turn.
Hurwitz said he had
asked Horwood to allow
South African .citizens to
deduct contributions to
the Iceren Hayesod from
their taxes. He and Hor-
wood also agreed to set
up a standing committee
to top officials of both
countries to meet semi-

Institutionalized
Anti-Semitism

MONTREAL (JTA) — A
Canadian - Jewish leader,
just returned from the Hel-
sinki review conference in
Madrid, said the alarming
decrease in the number of
Jews allowed to leave the
Soviet Union is the result of
anti-Semitism. "What we
are talking about is in-
stitutionalized anti-
Semitism," said Irwin Co-
tler, president of the Cana-
dian Jewish Congress.

annually on economic
matters. One item on its
agenda will be to work
out the details of ari
agreement whereby Is-
rael will buy coal from
South Africa for its new
coal-fired power plant at
Hadera. AnOther is Is-
rael's request for fishing
rights in South African
waters.
Horwood said the issue of
apartheid had not been
raised in his talks with
Hurwitz and other Israeli
officials because it would be
pointless for either country
to enter into the internal
policies of the other.
Hurwitz denied that the
government had made an
attempt to "play down"
Horwood's visit which was
sharply criticized by some
opposition members of the
Knesset because of his
country's racial policies.
Horwood met with Premier
Menahem Begin and
Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir.

After the Dec. 16 Chris-
tian militia raid, the Is-
raelis reported that PLO
units in south Lebanon
shelled Israeli settlements
in the Galilee. No infuries
or damage resulted. Settlers
went to shelters until the
PLO shelling ended'.
The Israel army
spokesman has denied
reports from Damascus
that Israeli tanks are in
southern Lebanon.
Damascus_ Radion inter-
rupted its broadcasts
Dec. 20 to announce that
its army had shelled Is-
raeli tank concentrations
in southern Lebanon.
Israeli sources had earlier
said that the, Syrian army
had lobbed over 1,000 shells
at the Christian militia
forces firing an hours bom-
bardment.
