  • Description

    ISRAEL'S PRIME MINISTER, MRS GOLDA MEIR, TOLD AN ISRAELI LABOUR PARTY CONVENTION IN JERUSALEM LAST NIGHT (SUNDAY) THAT HER GOVERNMENT WOULD REJECT ANY PROPOSAL FOR A MIDDLE EAST SETTLEMENT WHICH WOULD NOT BRING REAL PEACE. SHE WAS SPEAKING AS RESIDENTS OF THE TOWN OF KIRYAT SHMONEH, WHICH SHE VISITED LAST FRIDAY (AUGUST 1), WERE RECOVERING FORM THEIR SECOND ROCKET ATTACK IN 48 HOURS.

    KIRYAT SHMONEH, WITH A POPULATION OF 17,000 PEOPLE -- MOST OF THEM EMIGRANTS FROM ARAB COUNTRIES -- IS IN UPPER GALILEE, NEAR THE LEBANON BORDER.

    THE LATEST ATTACK, IN WHICH A NUMBER OF ROCKETS LANDED ON THE TOWN SHORTLY BEFORE MIDNIGHT, FOLLOWED A VISIT ON FRIDAY BY SEVERAL ISRAELI LEADERS, INCLUDING MRS GOLDA MEIR.

    NO ONE WAS KILLED IN THE ATTACK, BUT ONE ROCKET HIT A TREE AND EXPLODED IN THE AIR, SPRAYING FRAGMENTS OF METAL THROUGH THE WALLS OF NEARBY HOUSES. SEVERAL CARS WERE DAMAGED.

    CIVIL DEFENSE WORKERS, FIRE BRIGADE OFFICERS AND POLICE COMBED THE TOWN LOOKING FOR UNEXPLORED SHELLS AS THE TOWNSPEOPLE REMAINED IN SHELTERS.

    IN A SIMILAR ATTACK ON THURSDAY, A WOMAN WAS WOUNDED BY FLYING METAL.
