  • Description

    Israeli security forces allege they have wiped out the entire organisation of an Arab underground movement responsible for a series of sabotage acts in the jerusalem area in the past few weeks. Senior police officers yesterday (Thursday) told newsmen that 24 suspects, including four girls, had been remanded in custody by a magistrate and will go on trial.

    Most of the arrests were said to follow swift action after last Sunday's (8 Oct) abortive attempt to blow up a crowded cinema in the heart of Jerusalem.

    On show at the news conference were arms, explosives and ammunition as well as other equipment which police said they seized during their swoop on underground hideouts.

    Mr. Shaul Rosolio, the local police commander claimed that all the training material and equipment were of the types used in the Syrian army. The suspects were described by Mr. Rosolio as members of the Damascus-based El-Fatah organisation.
