Fundamentalists Kill
In Wave Of Violence

Jerusalem (JTA) — Prime
Minister Yitzhak Rabin has
voiced concern about a new
wave of Arab violence in the
wake of the killing of three
soldiers by Muslim funda-
mentalists in the ad-
ministered territories.
Mr. Rabin said at the
weekly session of the
Cabinet that the murderous
attacks would not affect the
ongoing Middle East peace
But he did warn that the
attacks should be viewed as
a new wave of terrorism.
The Cabinet heard brief-
ings on the attacks at the
end of last week against
Israel Defense Force targets
in the West Bank. They were
also briefed on an incident
earlier last week in which a
Palestinian deliberately
rammed into two Israeli
vehicles in Gaza, taking the
life of an officer with the
Israeli Civil Administration
in the territories.
In the most recent
violence, Sgt. Tomer David,
22, of Kibbutz Manara and
Sgt. Lev Pisahov, 20, a new
immigrant from Russia,
were shot to death in an
army outpost near the
village of Deir Balut in
In a separate incident, Cpl.
Yaron Chen, 20, was kid-
napped from a hitchhike sta-
tion on the Ramallah-
Jerusalem road and shot to
death. His body was then set
afire inside the car, which is
believed to have been stolen.
Palestinian sources said
the assault on the army out-
post was a reprisal for
Israel's weeklong shelling of
southern Lebanon that end-
ed July 31.
It was also described as a
show of force in the wake of
the tough measures taken in
the past year against
Muslim fundamentalist
elements in the territories.
The killing and burning of
the third soldier was de-
scribed as an act of revenge
for the killing of Maher Abu-
Srur, the terrorist who late
last year murdered Haim
Nahmani, an agent with the
Shin Bet domestic security
force. Abu-Srur was killed in
a clash with the security
forces in Jerusalem six
weeks ago.
The terrorists who
murdered Cpl. Chen re-
portedly offered him a ride to
Jerusalem. Eyewitnesses
said they saw the soldier

enter the car — which car-
ried Israeli license plates —
and then saw three young
men in the car struggling
with the soldier and forcing
him to the floor.
An Israeli driver who was
giving a ride to a soldier
began chasing the kid-
nappers' car. The soldier
fired shots at the car, but
The car was found a few
hours later in the village of
Beitouniya, near Ramallah,
with Cpl. Chen's burned
body inside.

checkpoint near Deir Balut.
The terrorists got out of the
car and shot to death the two
soldiers manning the post.
A third soldier began fir-
ing at the attackers from a
nearby outpost, killing one
of them and wounding an-
other. Another terrorist
managed to escape.
Following the attacks, the
army restated its standing
orders for soldiers to travel
by bus or military vehicles
only and not to do any hit-
The Muslim fundamenta-
list show of force came but
four weeks before Mr. Rabin
was expected to follow
through on his promise to
allow back home half of the
close to 400 fundamentalists
deported to Lebanon last
December from the ter-
ritories. O
