  • Description

    Four Israeli died on Sunday (22 April) when Palestinian guerrillas mounted a sea-borne attack on the northern resort of Nahariya. The Israelis said two guerrillas were killed and another two taken prisoners -- one of them seriously wounded. Nahariya was attacked in the early hours of the morning after a journey by rubber boat from the Lebanese port of Tyre lasting three and a half hours. Later Israeli gunboats bombarded abase near Tripoli run by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. Responsibility for the Nahariya raid was attributed both to the Popular Liberation Front -- an Iraqi-backed group which broke away from the PLFP -- and the Beirut-based Arab Liberation Front. In an interview with Visnews in Beirut, the military chief of the ALF, Abu Abbas, said the attack was carried out in answer to the 'treason' of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat against the Palestinian people.
