Download PDF for this date

The Prime Minister’s Office denied Thursday a report in the Washington Post that Amiram Nir, the Prime Minister’s advisor on terrorism, has been stripped of his duties.

The Post said Premier Yitzhak Shamir took the step after it became clear that Nir lied to him about his secret meeting with Iranian arms dealer Manacher Ghorbanifar.

Nir, contacted at his office, had no comment.
