The World : Israeli's Expulsion Sought

December 02, 1987

An Arab-American group has placed posters on subway cars in Washington demanding the expulsion of Amos Yaron, a military attache at the Israeli Embassy, over his alleged role in the 1982 Beirut refugee camp massacre. The Washington-based American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, the nation's largest Arab-American interest group, bought space on 107 cars for the month of December, a spokeswoman for the capital's transit agency said. Hundreds of Palestinians were slain by Israeli-backed Christian militiamen in the Chatilla and Sabra refugee camps in Beirut. After an inquiry, the Israeli government in 1983 removed Maj. Gen. Yaron from his military field command for three years.
