Arab Commandos Operating from Lebanon Captured in Israel

Download PDF for this date

A gang of Arab fedayeen (suicide squad members) operating from Lebanese territory but under Egyptian directives, was captured this week-end near Nazareth, an Israeli military spokesman announced here today.

Among the arrested Arabs were two Lebanese and a number of residents of Arab villages in Upper Galilee. They belong to a band which three years ago murdered a Jewish couple named Zipori and which has carried out attacks on Israeli vehicles on northern roads.
