Israeli Leaders Vow
Action in Lebanon

Peres says Israel "will
exhaust every possibility."

Tel Aviv (JTA) — A sailor aboard
an Israel Navy patrol boat, was killed
by gunfire from the Lebanese shore
Tuesday morning as armored Israel
Defense Force units fanned out of the
border security zone into south Leba-
non to search for two IDF soldiers kid-
napped Monday by Shiite Moslem ex-
tremists. A soldier of the Israel-backed
South Lebanon Army (SLA) was also
kidnapped and two SLA soldiers were
killed in a convoy ambush inside the
security zone Monday.
Military sources identified the

slain sailor as Daniel Amar, 19, a
naval rating from Netanya. He was
the victim of a sharpshooter who fired
at the patrol boat from a beach near
Tyre. He was the third Israeli military
fatality since the IDF was withdrawn
from south Lebanon eight months ago.
A number of suspected terrorists
were detained in Israel's sweep. They
are understood to be members of Has-
ballah (Army of God), an extremist
Shiite group linked to Iran. Hasballah
is believed responsible for the ambush
of the three-car convoy carrying IDF
and SLA soldiers near Beth Yahun vil-
lage.

Jerusalem — He
is unmistakably
tired and pale, but
nine years of hell in
Soviet prisons and
labor camps have not
diminished the flashes
of humor and the
sparkling intelligence
of Soviet Jewry's Shcharansky
foremdst activist.
"Are you aware that every politi-
cal party in Israel is vying to recruit
you to its side?" asks the man from Le

Monde.

"The only thing I can tell you for
sure is that the Communist Party
won't be able to recruit me," is Anatoly
Shcharansky's instant reply.
It is a measure of the man that so
soon after his release, his powerful
message — the freedom of Soviet Jews
to emigrate and the guarantee of
human rights for all who remain in the
Soviet Union — and the description of
his ordeal are heavily laced with wit.
Speaking to hundreds of jour-
nalists in Jerusalem — many of whom
have flown in from the United States
and Europe to attend his first press
conference since his release a few days
earlier — Anatoly Shcharansky is
asked to explain his relatively robust

appearance. It is, he says simply, the
result of a time-honored Soviet tradi-
tion — taking care how they package
goods for export.
Twice he had been "fattened up"
for special occasions: "Once, in No-
vember 1984, I was taken to hospital
and for two months I received very
good treatment — vitamin injections
and such food as butter, meat and milk
which didn't exist in the camp.
"Everything became clear when I
was taken from the hospital to see my
mother and brother — a private meet-
