News Brief

The State Department said Thursday that the U.S. has made “no threats” to Israel should it decide to invade Beirut. The Department’s deputy spokesman, Alan Romberg, gave that reply when asked it the U.S. might consider sanctions such as the cut off of American aid and arms deliveries should the Israelis break the present cease-fire and send their forces against the remnants of the Palestine Liberation Organization in west Beirut.
