Terrorists Earmarking New Targets

Sources here said today that the next target of Arab terrorists may be Alitalia, the Italian airline. The terrorists’ intention would be to force Italian authorities to release two Arabs arrested at Rome Airport last summer after they tried to dupe two British girls into carrying a live bomb aboard an El A1 airliner, the sources said.

Available information here also pointed to possible new attacks on Israeli targets with the objective of receiving maximum publicity, the sources said. They reported that stringent security measures have been introduced at Israeli diplomatic missions and organizations abroad in close coordination with the security authorities of the host countries. The purpose is to secure Israeli Embassies, offices and individuals from possible attacks by terrorists, the sources said.
