he said. "We met with high-
level officials in Moscow, and
there are rumors that there
will be more human rights ges-
tures in January." He was told
the embassy should have a de-
cision after Saturday.
Keith and Svetlana met with
several refuseniks at a Moscow
party during his visit. Braun
talked with Abe Stolar, an
American Jew who has been
trying to leave the Soviet
Union for many years after his
family returned there from
Chicago in the 1930s. The Sto-
lar case, which has received
national attention, is now ap-
parently hinged on Soviet
"concerns" about financial
support for Stolar's mother if
Stolar's family is allowed to re-
turn to the U.S.
Braun also met Alex Ioffe, a
mathematician who has been a
refusenik for ten years. Ioffe
told Braun he planned to begin
a hunger strike on Thursday to
dramatize his plight.
Braun took Chanukah can-
dles and a Fiddler on the Roof
music box with him to Moscow,
"so we were able to celebrate
Chanukah. Fortunately,
someone had told Svetlana the
story ofFiddler on the Roof, so
she was able to understand the
music." Braun hopes, after this
week, that he will be able to
explain the story to Svetlana in
the United States.

SLA Casualties,
PLO Worry
Israel Officials

Jerusalem (JTA) — Israeli
officials are worried over the
mounting casualties suffered
by the Israeli-backed South
Lebanon Army (SLA) in recent
days. Four SLA soldiers were
killed in a roadside bomb am-
bush in the south Lebanon sec-
urity zone Monday and a fifth
died of his wounds Tuesday.
Six SLA soldiers were killed
and two were wounded last
Friday when their positions at
Barashit village were overrun
by forces of the pro-Iranian
Shiite extremist group Hezbul-
lah. Over 100 SLA soldiers
have been killed and 200
wounded in the security zone
since May 1985.
Premier Yitzhak Shamir
promised Monday that Israel
would assist the SLA in its pre-
sent difficulties. He said in a
television interview that the
SLA commanders were compe-
tent officers who understand
their mission is not to abandon
the local population to ter-
rorists. According to Shamir,
the existence of the SLA is in
no danger.
Foreign news reports said
the Israel Air Force staged a
second helicopter attack on
Hezbullah strongholds in
south Lebanon Monday, fol-
lowing a helicopter attack
Sunday. A military spokesman
denied the second attack.
