Yasser Arafat's Palestine Liberation
Organization (PLO) claimed respon-
sibility for the midafternoon bombing
that shattered the festive atmosphere
in the popular vacation town on the Sea
of Galilee. It was jammed with tourists
who had arrived for a holiday that

Israelis killed in terrorist attacks this
year to 15. Authorities said eight of the
wounded were in serious condition.
Police reported the bomb, placed in a

In Qatar, a top aide to Arafat
repeated the PLO vow to attack

news conference, "American interests

world are well known to us, and we will
hit them because we realize the enor-

Americans harbor for us Palestinians."

with a warning by Arafat that Israel
would start a war against Lebanon and
Syria now that the Israeli-Egyptian
peace treaty had secured Israel's
southern border.
"We expect now a preemptive war -
as Israel puts it so nicely - on Israel's
