Shooting of El Al Plane is Discussed By Israel Cal)inet JERUSALEM (JTA) — The Israel Cabinet heard Pre¬ mier Moshe Sharett's report on the "brutal" shooting down of the Israel El Al Constellation by Bulgarian gunners last week. Afterwards, the Cabinet issued a statement ex¬ pressing its abhorrence of this "horrible act" and express¬ ing its sympathy for the families of the 58 victims. Be¬ cause it is impossible to identify the bodies of the victims, the Cabinet accepted the Premier's suggestion that they be buried in a coinii^on grave. Meanwhile a special corres¬ pondent of Maariv, a Tel Aviv evening newspaper, report¬ ed from Bulgaria •— on the basis of eye-witness accounts and from sources on tfae Israel investigating commission— that the El Al plane was pursued and shot down by Rus¬ sian-made Bulgarian jet planes. The Maariv accost says that iwo Bulgarian planes forced the Constellation to leave the air corridor between Greece .and. Bulgaria and veer to¬ ward Bulgaria. Both jets were firing on the Constellation which exploded in mid-air, the Maariv correspondent said- He added that the British air attache in Sofia was also of the opinion that the Constellation was shot dowi; from the air, not from the ground as the Bulgarian version had it. In the wake of Bulgaria's offer RIGHTIST HERMITS MAKE BIG GAIN IN ELECTION TEL AVIV, (.TTA) — More than 50 persons were Injured In a clash between supporters of the Mapal, Israel's Labor Party, and oppon¬ ents of the party. The tight took place between families residing in an Immigrant camp In Tiberias. Several of the injured were taken to a hospital, a number were ar¬ rested. The police Imposed a cur¬ few on the camp. Talks on the composition of the new Israel CUiblnet were started between David Ben Gurion and Moshe Sharett, Mapal leadei^. on one hand, and Moshe Shapiro, leader of the Religious Bloc, on the other. The outgoing cabinet win officially resign on Aug. 16, when the new Parliament coh- venes. The results of last week's elec¬ tions nre still a subject of heated discussion among the followers of various parties. Summarizing the results at a meeting of Mapal leaders, David Ben Gurion said that as a citizen of Israel, he wos (uU of anxiety—although from his party's point ot view he was not worried. He explained his attitude by saying that the Mapai's status remained unchanged in that It would be impossible for any gov¬ ernment to be formed vrithout Mapal participation. Turning to a discussion of the big gain registered by the rightist Herut party, Ben Gurion, likened it to foam. He said "it would dis¬ appear as It appeared, because there is no fear of Fascism ever succeeding to the leadership ot Israel." Meanwhile, the results of the municipal elections In Jerusalem and Tel Aviv—which were held simultaneously with the. national elections — were annoimced. In Jerusalem, the Mapal won six seats in the muniglpal council; th* Heruft—four; Agudah and Poale Agudah — three; Mlzrachi and Poale Mlzrachl-three; and Pro¬ gressives-two.

Dr. Walter Eytan, director general of the Is¬ rael Foreign Ministry, handed Christo Cknitev, Bulgarian Charge d'Affalres here, a. note demanding full compensation as well as pun- lahinent ot thoae who were re¬ sponsible. He also Insisted once again that the Israel commission of inquiry, whose six members were encamped on the Greek side of the Bulgarian frontier near the site ot the crash, should be given entry into Bulgarian territory to view the wreckage. I«ter, the Bulgaiten Goveni- ment retreated from tU poslitlon of refusing to admit the commission, and allowed three members of the group to come In. This was in addl- tioh to Baruch Nir, Israel Charge d'Affalres at Sofia, who was allow¬ ed to go to Petrich, scene of thB"5rash, earlier. Meanwhile, El Al has announced that it has rerouted Its flights front Tel Avlv-Vlenna and Tol Aviv-Zurlch ao that they wUI trav¬ el via Rome, rather then Istanbul.

Folkman, rabbi of Temple Israel, will be the guest of the B'nal B'rith HUlel Founda¬ tion on the program of "Morning Devotions" over Station WOSU Tuesday morning, 8:30 a. to. to 8:45, In this recorded worship, he will be accompanied by Cantor Frederick Lechner and the choir of the Central Synagogue of New York City, under the direction of WRECKAGE SHOWS MACHINE GUN EVIDENCE JERUSALEM, (JTA)—Israel In¬ vestigators who Inspected the wreckage, of the El Al Constella¬ tion Inside Bulgaria have gained the Impression that the plane was attacked by machine gun fire, an Israel Foreign Ministry spokesman said here after the first report from the three investigators was received and studied here. The spokesman further charged the Bulgarians with "tampering'^ with the evidence ot a machine gun at¬ tack. . "The first rep6rls from Israel's inquiry commission to EI AI are most disquieting and- add gravity to theb arbarous character of the outrage." the spokesman said. He revealed that "numerous bullet holes" were found in the wreckage, which was scattered over a wide area. This became cleor, he con¬ tinued, "in spite ot the tact that the parts had obviously been tajn- pered with In an effort to remove Incriminating evidence." The spokesman also lilt the lack of cooperation on the port of the Bulgarian authorities: their grant¬ ing permission to only three com¬ missioners ot six to enter the coun'try; their permitting the in¬ vestigators to remain only six hours; the fact that Bulgarian of¬ ficers accompanying the investi¬ gators were uncommimicative and unwilling to Impart any infor¬ mation, and the fact that the In¬ terrogation of Bulgaria witnesses to the Incident was not permitted. The combination of these facts Is 'alarming," the spokesman sold. In addition, the Bulgarian Gov¬ ernment commission—consisting of three Cabinet members ahd the state prosecuitor—which was to in¬ vestigate the incident "has not seen fit to publish any of Its flnd- Inga" The Israel Legation In Sofia, the spokesman disclosed, has been instructed to demand full and im¬ mediate information on this score, he added. Inquiries are now being made about the posslbUltles of extending the Investlgaitloil to Yitgoslav ter¬ ritory, from which the plane came just before it was shot down. Af¬ ter that phase of the study is com-, pleted, he said, the Israel Investi¬ gators will seek to re-enter Bul¬ garia for further and more detail¬ ed studies. Folkman has chosen, "Aa We See It.'
