Israel Army Investigates
Terrorist Raid In North

Tel Aviv (JTA) — The collo-
quial Hebrew equivalent of
"serious blunder in the north
— blow to the IDF" formed
the banner headline in
Maariv last week, and seems
to sum up the general feeling
among senior officers, govern-
ment officials and the public
about the terrorist attack on
an army camp near Kiryat
Shemonah.
The attack was by a lone
terrorist who flew south from
Lebanon into Israel on a
motorized hang-glider. He
landed in a thorn field near
the Gibor landing-strip east of
Kiryat Shemona and attack-
ed an IDF vehicle, wounding
a woman soldier and killing
the officer who was driving.
The terrorist then made his
way to the army camp about
200 yards away, where he
killed five soldiers in a sur-
prise attack and wounded six
before one of the wounded
soldiers fatally shot him.
The deceased soldiers were
buried in separate funerals.
Two of the seven soldiers
wounded in the attack were
reported to be in a serious
condition.
Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Dan
Shomron has announced that
the IDF will investigate why
the troops were surprised,
despite detection of the
motorcycle-like sound of
hang-glider as it passed over
the security zone that
stretches north of Israel's
border with Lebanon.
He said it already appears
that the single sentry at the
tent camp's entrance — a rope
strung between two barrels —
failed to act in the proper
manner to halt the intruder.
Newspapers report that he
ran when a grenade was
hurled toward him.
Shomron said there was no
doubt that the attack had
been carried out by Ahmed
Jabreel's Popular Front for
the Liberation of Palestine-
General Command, which
had trained on hang-gliders
in Syria. He said the flight
probably embarked from the
Syrian- controlled Lake
Karoun region in the Bekaa
Valley of Lebanon.
The PFLP-General Com-
mand is known to specialize
in brutal terror acts and
neglect political activity.
Jabreel, 52, is a former cap-
tain in the Syrian engineer-
ing corps. He split in 1968
from the Popular Front for
the Liberation of Palestine,
headed by Dr. George
Habash, and has since acted
under Syrian patronage,

receiving additional aid and
training from Libya.
The organization is known
to plan its operations careful-
ly. Therefore, its known opera-
tions are few, but dramatic.
The last two attacks attri-
buted to the Jabreel group
date back to 1974: the murder
of 18 Israelis in Kiryat
Shemona; and the killing of
two members of Kibbutz
Shamir and a foreign volun-
teer in that same year.

Ancient Human
Bones Found

Jerusalem (JTA) — Human
bones which experts date
back some 8,000 years were
found at the site of an ancient
submerged village on the
Mediterranean seabed off-
shore from the town of Atilt,
it was reported last week.
The discovery was made by
Prof. Avraham Ronen and
Ehud Galili of Haifa Univer-
sity. They were spotted by the
marine archaeologists after a
storm that cleared away
layers of sand which had
covered them. They were
reported in an "excellent
state of preservation."
Examination of one of the
skeletons detected signs that
the person suffered from an
ear infection common among
sea divers. If this is proven
correct, it would be the first
evidence that men dived for
fish in pre-historic times.
The village itself, under 14
meters of water, was dis-
covered four years ago. It is
believed to have met its fate
at the end of the last ice age
when rising waters flooded
the coastal plane.

UAHC Pushes
Smoking Ban

New York — The 1.3-million
member Union of American
Hebrew Congregations has
called on its 810 Reform
synagogues in the United
States and Canada to "ban
smoking entirely" at all of
their meetings, functions and
workplaces.
In a resolution adopted at
its recently-concluded na-
tional biennial convention,
the Reform Jewish group also
called on the United States
and Canada "to phase out
subsidies to the tobacco in-
dustry, while taking steps to
cushion adverse economic im-
pact."
