VAR Missiles Replaced as Fast as Israel Downs Them

TEL AVIV (JTA)—All the Egyp-
tian anti-aircraft missiles and mis-
sile sites Israel has destroyed in
61 consecutive days of attacks
have been replaced, an Israeli
staff officer reported Tuesday.
''The missile situation is un-
changed," he said. "By that I
mean the deployment, the number
of sites and the limits from the
canal are unchanged. They are
having no problems replacing mis-

On the brighter side, he noted
that the Israeli strikes had pre-
,. ented the construction of addi-
tional missile sites, although It-
zhak Rabin, . ambassador to the
United States and former chief of
staff, said recently that the Soviet-
made' Egyptian missiles were as
close as two or three miles from
the Suez Canal. The government
has said they are no clpser than
15 miles from the canal.

Israel has put the number of
Egyptian missile bases at about a
dozen SAM-2s and three SAM-3s.
(In Moscow, the Communist
Party newspaper Pravda insist-
ed that there are no Soviet per-
sonnel operating missiles in
Egypt, contending that "the real
reason" for such reports is "the
fear of Israeli generals about the
growth of Israeli losses."

(Should those losses continue,
Pravda said, "the military superi-
ority of the Israelis over the Arabs
will continue to melt."

the claim. The Cairo spokesman
also alleged that the Phantom

said had switched tactics and was
flying low, had been "intercepted
from the very first moment."
(If true, the claim suggests that
the Phantom was shot by an ad-
vanced SAM-3 surface-to-air mis-

Israelis Stay in Cambodia to Help
Farmers as U.S., Viet Troops Leave

WASHINGTON (JTA)—As the Americans and Vietnamese are
pulling out of Cambodia, the Israelis are staying.

The Jewish Telegraphic Agency learned that a four-man inter-
national cooperation project in Cambodia is staying to continue organ-
izing Cambodian farmers and helping them use modern farming meth-
ids in the Mekong River area.
"The men tiave instructions not to pull out as long as they can
possibly fulfill their mission: to fight hunger," an Israeli Embassy
spokesman said.
The Israelis have been in Cambodia for almost four years, organiz-
ing farmers cooperatives for marketing, consuming and using water
and running experimental farms where new strains of old crops—
such as rice—and new crops are grown and demonstrated. They were
invited into the area by the Mekong River Committee, an outgrowth
of the United Nations' Economic Commission for Asia and the Far East.
The Israeli ambassador in Nam Phon has the final word on when
these farmers in their experimental farm 15 miles north of Pam Phen
are to be evacuated. Their families left last month when fighting
broke out near the' capital.
According to an Israeli spokesman, the Cambodian farmers working
with the Israelis have made plans to defend their farms if the Com-
munists get close.
