IN SUCCESSIVE statements, when
staying at home appeared to be a
politically popular move, Carter
strengthened his pledge.
As late as April 23, one day before he
ordered the ill-fated hostage rescue
mission and after he had lost a close
primary fight in Pennsylvania to Sen.
Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.), Carter
continued to insist his personal vigil for
the hostages would not succumb to
politics. "No, I don't intend to cam-
paign during the primary season until
we've resolved the hostage question,"
he told a questioner.
One week later, with the hostage
question still unresolved after nearly
six months, the president abruptly
reversed himself, saying that "a lot of
the responsibilities that have been on
my shoulders in the past few months
have now been alleviated to .some

BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP)-Israeli
commandos attacked two Palestinian
guerrilla strongholds deep in southern
Lebanon before dawn yesterday in a
seaborne raid that left four guerrillas
dead and six wounded, the Palestine
Liberation Organization said.
In Tel Aviv, Israeli Chief of Staff Lt.
Gen. Rafael Eytan was quoted by
Israeli army radio as calling the light-
ning commando raid part of Israel's
"general war on terrorism" and said
more such raids were likely.
IN RENEWED action at sundown,
the PLO high command here reported a
heavy artillery duel between guerrillas
positions and Israeli-backed Christian
militias who control a six-mile-deep en-
clave on the border with Israel. It
claimed an Israeli-supplied tank was
destroyed and its crew killed by
guerrilla gunners at a spot between the
Christian-controlled town of Marjayoun
and the guerrilla stronghold of
Nabatiyeh, 12 miles north of Israel.
Lebanese provincial authorities said
it was the heaviest artillery battle
across U.N.-policed areas in southern
Lebanon in 20 days. The casualties
could not be confirmed. United
Nations forces serve as a buffer bet-
ween guerrilla: positions and the
Christian militia enclave.
In Israeli-occupied territories, the
military continued its "hard hand"
policy against Palestinian unrest by
blowing up two houses of suspected
terrorists and clamping yet another
curfew on a town in the West Bank of
the Jordan River. Violent demon-
strations were reported in Jerusalem.
Israeli military authorities said the
commando attack was aimed at shat-
tering the security of the Palestinian
guerrillas in Lebanese areas under
their control and forcing the PLO to
concentrate its forces on self-defense
instead of attacks on Israel.
