TEL AVIV—Premier Levi Esh-
kol expressed the hope Wednesday
that the day would come "when
the Arabs recognize that Israel is
indestructible and cannot be de-
stroyed by local wars."
Speaking at mustering-out exer-
cises of reservists and regular
troops at the close of extensive
maneuvers, the Premier also called
Israel's situation without parallel
anywhere in the world. He said
"We are in a • permanent stage of
siege outnumbered in men and
women. Our defense forces are few
against many and would have to
rebuff adverse odds of quantity
by quality."

He said that the hostility of
esident Nasser of Egypt
against Israel was unaffected by
the poverty of his people and
his country. Noting that Nasser
had started "courting" other
powers and that many of them
were inclined to patch up their
relations with Egypt, the Prem-
ier said this reconciliation might
endanger peace in the Middle
East.
Asserting that these changes
meant that Israel's defense forces

would have to do their utmost to
defend the country and to serve
as a deterrent to aggression, he
warned that "When the order to
march is given, we will carry the
war beyond our frontiers."
Major Gen. Yitzhak Rabin, the
chief of staff, told military corres-
pondents that similar maneuvers
would be held annually, reporting
that more than 10,000 men and
2,000 military vehicles of all types
took part in the exercises.
The final action involved imple-
mentation of a massive break-
through by tank units with a fol-
lowup supporting infantry units.
