Israeli Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin rejected right-wing demands to step up attacks against guerrillas in Lebanon in the aftermath of a hang-glider raid that killed six Israeli soldiers. During a parliamentary debate over last week's raid, right-wing legislators accused the government of a passive policy against infiltrators and demanded more Israeli strikes on guerrilla bases. "They (the strikes) are not a wonder drug, and anybody who imagines we can get rid of the terrorist problem in one decisive blow is deluding himself," Rabin said. Israel has bombed guerrilla bases in Lebanon 23 times this year.
