  • Description

    The Israeli commando raid on Lebanon on Monday(9 April) was in response to "intensified" terrorism against Israeli targets in Europe and other places, Israel's Army Chief of Staff said on Tuesday(10 April).

    Lieutenant-General David Elazar told a press conference that the major target of the raid in which three top guerrilla leaders were killed -- Beirut -- was one of the few places in the world where guerrillas could train and prepare their activities freely.

    The commando raid by Israeli soldiers, was in keeping with their policy of striking guerrillas wherever they were found, he said.

    He said the raid was only 'partly' reprisal for Monday's attack on an Israeli jetliner and the Israeli ambassador in Cyprus.

    A transcript of Lieutenant-General Elazar's statement about reasons for the raid and his naming of the three leaders killed, follows:
