Soviet 'Screen' for Libya Told

January 16, 1986|Associated Press

TEL AVIV — Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin said today that three Soviet ships steaming off the coast are there to pass information to Libya about the movements of Israeli ships and planes.

The Soviets have shown "great sensitivity" about Israel's intentions since the Palestinian terrorist attacks on the Rome and Vienna airports and set up a "warning screen" with the ships, Rabin said.
