Terror Group Claims Role
In Death Of IDF Soldier

Jerusalem (JTA) — The Popu-
lar Front for the Liberation of
Palestine (PFLP), a Damascus-
based terrorist group, claimed re-
sponsibility this week for Mon-
day's murder of an Israeli soldier,
Corp. Aharon Avidar, in the West
Bank town of Ramallah.
A 'PFLP statement from
Damascus said one of its units at-
tacked a group of Israeli soldiers,
killed one and wounded others.
But the 29-year-old Corporal was
murdered by a lone gunman who
fired a single shot at him as he
stood guard at the gate to the gov-
ernment office compound in
downtown Ramallah. The killer
escaped in the crowded Streets.
About 150 shops in the vicinity
of the killing remained closed
through Tuesday by order of the
civil administration as security
forces continued to search for the
assailant.
Stones were thrown at an Is-
raeli schoolbus in Ramallah
Tuesday morning, near the Amari

New York — The 18th Quad-

killing. No one was hurt and there'
was no damage.
In a related development, Pre-
mier Shimon Peres has implicitly
warned West Bank settlers that: -/
the government would not
tolerate their taking the law into
their own hands.
Peres, speaking at Sunday's
Cabinet meeting which convened
to discuss the mounting tension in
the administered territories and
claims of the government's failure
to protect settlers from Arab ter- \ 1
rorists, said the policy of the gov-
ernment is a soft hand toward
law-abiding citizens Jews and
Arabs alike, and a hard hand
toward terrorists. But, he
stressed, only the government
and its law enforcement agencies_ \
will enforce the law in the ter-
ritories and no other elements 1
will be allowed to take the law
into their hands.
Only hours before Peres spoke,
hundreds of Jewish settlers, de-
manding harsher measures
against the Arab populace,\
blocked key roads in the territory
with their cars. The demonstra-
tion, which created mammoth
traffic jams, was a protest against
the government's alleged failure
to protect the roads.
The settlers moved their ve/
hides after nearly two hours, `
avoiding a clash with police.
Jewish militants in Hebron how-
ever uprooted 35 Arab-owned
fruit trees which they claim be-
longs to Jews.
