Army Tracking Down Terrorists

Download PDF for this date

Army units were combing large areas of northern Israel last night and this morning in an effort to track down a gang of Arab terrorists believed to have infiltrated from Lebanon. Footprints made by at least five persons were found in the Zari’it region near the Lebanese border yesterday precipitating a full scale search.

The tracks were followed to a wadi about ten miles north of Nahariya where they were lost. So far, no contact has been made with the terrorists who are believed to have slipped into Israel several hours before Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger’s arrival Saturday night. Some concern was expressed yesterday that the terrorists might attempt a provocation or a direct attack on Kissinger: But no incidents occurred during the Secretary’s brief stay in Israel.
