The army has blown up the houses of four of the terrorists who were part of the Abu-Dis gang arrested last week and charged with 11 acts of terrorism, including the bombing of the Mahane Yehuda market in Jerusalem last June in which two died, and the planting of a bomb in a fuel terminal causing the death of a police sapper. One house was in Abu-Dis and the others were in the Nablus area.

Meanwhile, Riyad Abu Awad, a 27-year-old graduate of the Beir Zeit College on the West Bank, was served with an expulsion order from the military governor of the West Bank last night. He was arrested 10 days ago as a suspect in inciting Arab students at Hebrew University to send a cable of support for the Palestine Liberation Organization and a Palestinian state to the meeting of the Palestine National Council in Damascus.
