Expert Blames Syria
For Glider Incident

New York (JTA) — The re-
cent terrorist attack by a lone
assailant who crossed the
Israel-Lebanon border on a
hangglider and killed six
Israeli soldiers is an attempt
by Syria to rebuild its
credibility in the Arab world,
an expert on terrorism
asserted in an interview here
last week.
According to Lt. Col.
Raanan Gissin, former depu-
ty spokesman of the Israel
Defense Force and the senior
liaison officer with the
foreign press in Israel from
1982 to 1986, Syria wanted to
demonstrate with this ter-
rorist attack that it is "the
leading force in the armed
struggle against Israel."
Syria, Gissin explained,
came out as a "total loser"
from last month's Arab sum-
mit meeting in Amman, Jor-
dan. Not only did King Hus-
sein of Jordan received "a
green light" by the end of the
summit to continue with the
efforts to reach a settlement
with Israel, but Syria also
found itself with only Libya
opposing the resumption of
diplomatic relations with
Egypt, Gissin noted.
"Syria found herself after
the summit almost isolated in
the Arab world. In addition to
the other factors, Syrian
isolation in the Arab world
was magnified by its support
of Iran in the Iran-Iraq war.
Syria needed something to
demonstrate a semblance of
leadership in the Arab world.
This is why President Hafez
Assad (of Syria) allowed the
terrorists of Ahmed Jabril,
who heads the Popular Front
for the Liberation of
Palestine-General Command,
which is headquartered in
Syria, to launch the attack
against Israel," Gissin said.
In Gissin's view, the ter-
rorist suicide mission proves
that Israel cannot seal its
border with Lebanon hermet-
ically. He contended, however,
that the perpetrator, who
sailed over the electrified
fences of the Lebanon-Israel
border in a hang-glider
powered by a small bicycle
motor, succeeded in his mis-
sion "by a fluke," because he
was actually spotted by the
IDF radar. Only a failure of
the guards to heed the warn-
ing that was issued enabled
the terrorist to kill six
soldiers and wound seven
others.
Gissin disclosed that in the
last six months, more than
150 terrorists have been
killed in the Israeli-controlled

security zone in southern
Lebanon and on the Israel-
Lebanon border by the IDF
and the South Lebanon
Army, which is backed by
Israel. In addition, various
terrorist organizations in
Lebanon have attempted 35
attacks on IDF and SLA
targets in southern Lebanon
in the last 12 months, Gissin
said.

Nakash Deported
To France

Tel Aviv (JTA) — William
Nakash, an Algerian-born
Jew, was deported to France
last week after losing a two-
year battle against extradi-
tion that raised the passions
of nationalist elements in
Israel and pitted the rab-
binical authorities against
the secular courts.
Nakash, under heavy guard,
Was taken handcuffed from
prison to the ramp of an El Al
plane at Ben Gurion Airport,
where he was handed over to
two French police officers sent
to escort him to France.
He will stand trial there for
the Feb. 22, 1983 murder of
Abdelali Hakkar, an Algerian
Arab in Besancon, a city in
southern France near the
Swiss border.
Nakash, 26, who fled to
Israel nearly four years ago to
escape an arrest warrant, was
tried in absentia for the
crime, convicted and sen-
tenced to life imprisonment.
The French authorities
agreed recently to give him a
second trial.

W. Germany Buys
Israeli Ammo

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Israel has
signed an agreement with
West Germany to supply its
army, the Bundeswehr, with
$190 million worth of ar-
tillery ammunition, Haaretz
reported from Bonn last
week.
In Bonn, the Defense Min-
istry simultaneously confirm-
ed that the deal was con-
cluded. It was signed for West
Germany by Heinz Glaser,
president of the Koblenz-
based Federal Office for
Military Procurement, and
for Israel by Michael Shor,
general manager of Israel
Military. Industries.
According to the newspaper
report, Israel Military In-
dustries will supply the West
Germans with the com-
ponents of the ammunition.
