Jerusalem (JTA) The Israel De-
fense Force arrested 21 suspect-
ed Hamas and Islamic Jihad
activists during an early morn-
ing raid at the Abu Dis College of
Technology in eastern Jerusalem.
The raid was part of a securi-
ty crackdown on suspected Is-
lamic fundamentalist activists in
the wake of the Jan. 22 bombing
at Beit Lid Junction that killed
21 Israelis.
The Palestinian Authority is-
sued a statement denouncing the
raid, calling it "a violation of aca-
demic freedoms, the peace agree-
ment and the agreement for early
empowerment in the West
Bank."
Last fall, the Palestinian Au-
thority assumed responsibility
for Palestinian educational in-
stitutions in the West Bank.
In the raid, dozens of soldiers
entered the school dormitories in
the early morning hours after
climbing ladders and breaking
through windows.
Both Hamas and Islamic Ji-
had are militantly opposed to the
Israeli-Palestinian peace process.
Four female students were
slightly injured in the raid.
The IDF said inflammatory
material was found during
searches of the dormitory rooms.
The army acknowledged that
there was some damage to school
property and equipment during
the course of the raid. IDF offi-
cials promised the administra-
tion that they would take
responsibility for the damage.
Since the attack at Beit Lid, up
to 100 Hamas supporters have
been detained in raids on offices
and homes in the Hebron, Nablus
and Jenin areas of the West
Bank.
According to security sources,
almost 1,600 Islamic activists
have been arrested since the Oct.
19 suicide bombing of a bus in the
heart of Tel Aviv.
The raid at Abu Dis came af-
ter Deputy Defense Minister
Mordechai Gur warned the
Palestinian Authority that if it
fails to step up its efforts to fight
terrorism, Israel will reconsider
its commitment to the security
provisions of the Palestinian self-
rule accord.
Appearing in the Knesset, Mr.
Gur said Israel was not satisfied
with the Palestinian response to
Israeli requests to hand over sus-
pected Palestinian terrorists.
Israel Radio quoted Mr. Gur
as saying that if Israeli leaders
continue to feel that the Pales-
tinians are failing to live up to
their end of security arrange-
ments, the government might re-
consider what he called "the
overall content of this part of the

agreement."
Mr. Gur's comments came in
the wake of a press leak of the
contents of a classified report on
Palestinian violations of its ac-
cord with Israel.
The opposition has frequently
mentioned the existence of an of-
ficial document detailing in-
fringements by the Palestinian
Authority.
The report was prepared in
December by the Judge Advo-
cate-General's Office.
Among the violations cited are
the Palestinian Authority's re-
fusal to hand over terrorists sus-
pected of having murdered
Israelis; its refusal to pass on re-
sults of investigations; the de-
taining of Israeli security
personnel at checkposts; and the
use of a weapon issued to the
Palestinian police in the October
terror attack at a pedestrian mall
in Jerusalem.
In addition to rounding up Is-
lamic fundamentalists, Israeli se-
curity officials closed down
pro-Hamas and pro-Islamic Ji-
had institutions, including a

mosque in Hebron and branches
of the Palestinian League of Is-
lamic Theologians.
Maj. Gen. Ilan Biran, the com-
mander of the Israeli army's cen-
tral command, which includes the
West Bank, told reporters: "We
are fighting a war of destruction
against the Hamas and Islamic
Jihad every day and every night."
Meanwhile, the head of the
Shin Bet domestic intelligence
service told the Knesset Foreign
Affairs and Defense Committee
that since the Oct. 19 suicide
bombing, Israeli security services
have prevented five terrorist at-
tacks from being carried out.
The security official also said
the number of Palestinians will-
ing to carry out suicide bomb at-
tacks was growing.
In Gaza, Palestinian police de-
tained Islamic Jihad activists, in-
cluding the group's spiritual
leader, Sheik Abdallah al-Shami.
Palestine Liberation Organi-
zation leader Yassir Arafat said
he would not tolerate terrorists
planning attacks against Israel
inside the autonomous areas.
