delivered a statement to Israeli Am-
bassador Moshe Arens condemning the
sraeli action, calling it a violation of
the cease-fire agreemtn secured Aug.

West Beirut Wednesday after the an-
nouncement that Lebanese President-
elect Bashir Gemayel, a Christian
militia leader, was killed in a bombing.
Eliahu Ben-Elissar, chairman of
