Israel Will Not Free 11 Lebanese Soldiers Until Shmuel Rosenwasser is Released

Israel will not free 11 Lebanese soldiers captured in a recent raid until Shmuel Rosenwasser, a watchman seized last year by Lebanese guerrillas near Metuallah. is released, Police Minister Shlomo Hillel said in a radio interview. He said Israel holds Lebanon responsible for the watchman’s safety and rejects the Government’s contention that a terrorist band, and not Lebanese soldiers, seized the watchman and that therefore, the Lebanese Government is not responsible.
