Deputy Premier Yigal Allon accused King Hussein of Jordan of ordering the shelling of Tiberias yesterday. Mr. Allon spoke today at the funeral of two victims of the shelling. He said the actual shelling was done by Iraqi artillery stationed in Jordan and warned the Israel Army will hit back with all means. Mr. Allon declared that Tiberias is and always will be strong and “together with the surrounding settlements, it will continue to stand fast.” “We are told that Hussein is a weak king,” Allon said. “We don’t want to be killed by any king, strong or weak.”
