Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 1, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 TM UTHMIOCl HWAIO Monday, Nbnwry 1, Israeli raiding parties attack Lebanon villages TEL AVIV (AP) Israeli raiding parties attacked two vil- lages in south Lebanon during the night and informed soirees said they destroyed a Palestin- ian guerrilla regional headquar- ters. A spokesman for the Israeli military command said an Is- raeli soldier was killed and three were wounded. A number of Arabs also were casualties, he said. The sources said heavy guer- rilla resistance at the headquar- ters caused all the Israeli cas- ualties. This- was at Al-Kyam, four miles north of the frontier. Guerrilla sources in Beirut claimed that 15 Israelis were killed or wounded. These sources said the guerrillas in Al-Kyam were already on a "maximum and the Is- raeli raiders "virtually walked into an ambush." The guerrillas suffered no casualties, the sources said. The Israeli command said the other target was the village of Kafer Kela, just west of the Upper Galilee town of Metulla, and sources in Israel said two houses used as guerrilla recruit- ing centres were destroyed. The sources said there was little resistance there and that the Israelis moved an Arab family out before destroying one touse.

The striking members of the Amalgamated Transit Union were informed Sunday at membership meetings of the terms of the proposed settle- ment, and will vote today on acceptance or rejection. The tentative agreement ready has been accepted by British Columbia Hydro, the crrwn corporation which oper- ates the public transit systems in the pro- in both cities.

Mr. Wishart was commenting in f television interview on the jwuiry into allegations made by" Dr. Shulman, New Demo- cratic Party member of the legislature, that OPP officers had associated with Oakville, Ont., businessman George Clinton Duke. The inquiry cleared the pro- vincial police of any wrong- doing. Mr. Wishart said after the in- quiry report was made public that he was considering charg- es against Dr. Shulman for ac- quiring information from a con- fidential police source. The attorney general noted at the tune that a section of the Criminal Code makes it an of- fence punishable by five years imprisonment for civil ser- vant to make public con- fidential information. Dr. Shul- man could have been charged as an accessory. During the inquiry .conducted by Mr. Justice Campbell Grant of the Ontario Supreme Court, Dr. Shulman refused to reveal the identity of the police source which supplied him with infor- mation. "Mr. Justice Grant, in his re- port, did at one point say that the matter of extracting infor- mation from a police officer who has been sworn to secrecy might be looked at to see if it was a matter that warrant- ed criminal Mr. Wis- hari said. "I don't feel that we will pur- sue the matter to that extent." Dr. Shulman said in an inter- view Sunday he was "elated1 that Mr. Wishart had decided not to press charges. several guerrilla attacks re- cently, the latest Friday right.
