US-Israeli strain over raid on Iraq lifted, envoy says
Tel Aviv — Special US envoy Robert McFarlane left for Washington Tuesday after meetings with Prime Minister Menachem Begin, which he said had helped clear US-Israeli relations strained by the June 7 attack on the Osirak reactor near Baghdad.
"Any misunderstanding which might have arisen in the wake of the Israeli operation has been clarified . . .," he said.
The White House said no decision had been made on the delivery of four F-16 planes, suspended after the raid. But an Israeli Foreign Ministry official said the aircraft, and six other s due for delivery, could be expected to leave the US Friday
