Download PDF for this date

Israeli sources claimed today that information uncovered during Israel’s raid on terrorist bases in northern Lebanon led to the arrest last Thursday in France of two Arab terrorists driving a car filled with explosives.

According to the same source, Israeli commando units discovered the plans for the planting of explosives in private cars and Israeli intelligence was able to alert French authorities in time to capture the suspects. The plan called for the use of innocent tourists to transfer the cars from Lebanon to Europe where the cars were to be handed over to other terrorists. The explosives were for terrorist activities in Europe.
