The World

February 12, 1986

The Israeli official who brought the so-called Jewish underground to trial for anti-Arab attacks, Yitzhak Zamir, announced his resignation after more than seven years as attorney general. Despite reports that he was unhappy about alleged political interference, Zamir told reporters that pressure did not influence his decision. He said that his reason for quitting was that it was "desirable to have a change of personnel in this position." Zamir, 55, a former head of the Hebrew University law school, was appointed by former Prime Minister Menachem Begin in 1978.
