GIAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) _ -
Israeli helicopters rocketed head-
quarters of Force 17, Yasser Arafat's
elite guard, in Gaza and the West
Bank town of Ramallah yesterday,
retaliating for a wave of bombings,
including a suicide attack that killed
two Israeli teen-agers.
Reed flares lit up the night sky
over Ramallah, where two people

were killed in the assault, and
flames leaped from burning build-
ings and cars as firefighters tried to
put out tnultiple blazes.
Doctors in Ramallah said the dead
included a member of Force 17 and a
female civilian. Overall, more than two
dozen Palestinians were injured in
Ramallah and Gaza, several critically,
doctors said.

The attacks on Palestinian gov-
ernment buildings were the first
since last fall and further eroded the
