  • Description

    ISRAELI SECURITY FORCES HAVE CAPTURED A MAN ALLEGED TO HAVE THROWN A GRENADE WHICH WOUNDED 47 ISRAELIS 15 SERIOUSLY, AT A HOLY SITE IN HEBRON, ON THE ISRAELI - HELD WEST BANK OF JORDAN. AN ISRAELI MILITARY SPOKESMAN SAID TODAY (THURSDAY) THAT THE SUSPECT WAS ARRESTED SOON AFTER YESTERDAY'S (WEDNESDAY'S) BLAST AT MACHPELAH CAVE, TRADITIONAL TOMB OF THE JEWISH PATRIARCHS. EIGHT OF THE WOUNDED WERE CHILDREN.

    THE SPOKESMAN IDENTIFIED THE YOUTH AS EZ-EDDIN RISHAR JIT, 17, OF HEBRON. HIS ARREST FOLLOWED THE INTERROGATION OF MANY PEOPLE DETAINED AFTER THE EXPLOSION.

    ISRAELI DEFENCE MINISTER, MOSHE DAYAN, TODAY VISITED THE EXPLOSION SITE AND AFTER SEEING HOSPITAL VICTIMS TOLD REPORTERS: "ONLY THE CULPRITS MUST BE PUNISHED NOT THE CITY OF HEBRON."
    HE SAID THOSE WHO PLANNED THE GRENADE ATTACK WOULD NOT SUCCEED IN MARRING LIFE IN THE AREAS OCCUPIED BY ISRAEL SINCE THE SIX-DAY WAR LAST YEAR. HE URGED ISRAELIS TO CONTINUE VISITS AND SIGHTSEEING TRIPS IN THESE AREAS.

    ACCORDING TO A JORDANIAN NEWSPAPER REPORT, MORE THAN 400 ARABS WERE ARRESTED AND IMPRISONED IN JERUSALEM, HEBRON AND BETHLEHEM FOR QUESTIONING.
