Kissinger Triumphs; Disengagement
Pact With Syria Being Signed Today

(Continued from Page 1)
diplomancy in the Middle
East finally succeeded. He
said that Kissinger "deserves
enormous credit for the work
that he has done, along with
members of his team, in
keeping the negotiations go-
ing and finally reaching
agreement when at many
times it seemed that the ne-
gotiations would break
Mr. Nixon pledged that the
U. S. would continue its dip-
lomatic initiatives, working
with all governments in the
area aimed at reaching a
permanent settlement.
Observers noted that Mr.
Nixon did not refer to the
Soviet Union in his remarks.
The U.S. and USSR are co-
chairmen of the Geneva
Peace Conference on the Mid-
dle East in the framework of
which the disengagement ac-
cord will be signed. The two
superpowers are expected to
be co-signers of the pact.
Kissinger returned from his
final visit to Damascus late
Tuesday night and met with
senior Israeli leaders at 2
a.m. Wednesday after a few
hours sleep. The ministers
met again with Kissinger
Wednesday morning after
which the full cabinet con-
vened for a progress report.
Some clarifications re-
quested by Israel were ap-
parently being obtained by
Kissinger's top Middle East
aide, Undersecretary of State
Joseph J. Sisco, who re-
mained in Damascus for fur-
ther discussions with Syrian
The development that ap-
parently persuaded Israel to
forego its original demand
for a Syrian commitment to
curb terrorist activities from
its territory was reportedly a
promise by Kissinger that the
U. S. would give Israel a
written guarantee that in the
event that terrorists, either
singly or in groups, infiltrate
Israeli territory from Syria,
Israeli forces will be allowed
to fight them and cross into
Syria in their pursuit.
The U. S. would not regard
such action by Israel as a vio-
lation of the disengagement
accord and will assist Israel
politically under the guaran-
tee. Kissinger was quoted as
saying that President Hafez
Assad of Syria refused to
guarantee Israel against ter-
rorist incursions because "if
I decide to renew the war I
will not do it through terror-
The issue was the subject
of long debate in the cabinet
where some ministers de-
manded that Israel make the
anti-terrorist clause an ulti-
matum. Only three ministers
—Moshe Kol of the Independ-
ent Liberal Party and Yosef
Burg and Yitzhak Rafael of
the National Religious Party
supported that line. Police
Minister Shlomo Hillel ab-
stained. The rest of the cab-
inet accepted the U. S. guar-
Although nothing official
has been announced by either
side, the disengagement ac-
cord reportedly includes the
following: A buffer zone of be-
tween 1.5 and 3.5 miles wide

will separate the two sides.
A UN force to be known offi-
cially as a "United Nations
Disengagement Force" will
police the buffer zone with
1,250 troops. Limited forces
zones 5.5 miles wide will be
established on both sides of
the buffer zone.
Each side will be permit-
ted no more than 6,000 troops,
75 tanks and 35 artillery
pieces in its zone. Beyond the
first limited forces zones, a
second zone of 5.5 miles will
be established in which each
side will be permitted up to
450 tanks but no long-range
artillery or anti-aircraft mis-

Israel Radio reported that
two Red Cross aircraft medi-
cal teams were standing by
in Geneva to commence a
prisoner-of-war exchange as
soon as the disengagement
accord is signed.
According to the Israeli
radio report, the agreement
will be signed in Geneva at
the end of the week. The U. S.
and the Soviet Union were ex-
pected to be co-signers in
their capacities as co-chair-
men of the Geneva peace con-
ference. According to an un-
confirmed report, the Israeli
delegation to Geneva will be
headed by Brig. Gen. Herzl
Shafir, chief of army head-

Syria, Lebanon Linked
in Latest Terrorist Effort

—Israel charged here that
the lastest incursions by ter-
orists had provided fresh
evidence that the govern-
ments of Lebanon and Syria
"continue to permit terror
and murder actions to be
planned and carried out from
their territory against Is-
raeli citizens and localities."
The charge was made by
Ambassador Jacob Doron,
acting permanent representa-
tive of Israel at the UN, in
a letter to Charles Maina,
this month's president of the
Security Council.
Doran cited the tracking
down of a group of eight
terrorists last Thursday, in
which an Israeli patrol cap-
tured two and killed the other
six. Doron said that the ter-
rorists, who belonged to the
Popular Democratic Front
for the Liberation of Pal-
estine, crossed the cease-fire
line from Syria and two
points north and south of a
village on the Golan Heights.
The Israel envoy reported
that the heavily-armed ter-
rorists had a lite of names
of 30 Arab terrorists in Is-
raeli prisons and that initial
questioning of the two cap-
tured terrorists, Abdallah
Medhi, a Syrian from Aleppo,
and Mahamada Hillalo, a
Palestinian from Jordan,
showed that the murder
squad had been sent to seize
two houses at Kibutz Haon
and Kibutz Ein Gev on the
Lake Kineret eastern shore,
to take a maximum number
of hostages "and then de-
mand the release of the 30
terrorists and the return of
the bodies of the three mur-
derers of Ma'alot."
According to Doran, the
two terrorists had said
that if the Israeli authori-
ties had refused to yield to
their demands, "the terrorists
were under orders to kill all
the hostages and to blow
themselves up, as was also
laid down in the plan for the
outrage at Ma'alot."
He quoted the two terror-
ists as telling their captors
that they crossed the Leb-
anese-Syrian boarder with-
out interference from Syrian
border guards and were
given three code words for
negotiations with Israeli army
officers through the ambas-

Israeli Diamond
Trade Sparkling

RAMAT-GAN — Sales of
Israeli polished diamonds for
the first four months of 1974
have reached $189,300,000,
or more than 4 per cent
ahead of the record 1973
This upswing is represent-
ed in exports to North Ameri-
ca, the Far East and Europe
and encompasses almost all
types of polished gem stones.
Principal consumers of Is-
rael diamonds in 1973 were,
in order: United States $131,-
600,000, up to 23.6 per cent;
Hong Kong, $71,600,000, up
12.9 per cent; Japan, $65,-
700,000, up 11.8 per cent;
and the Netherlands, $64,-
600,000, up 11.6 per cent.
To meet expanded demand
for Israeli polished diamonds,
additional manufacturing fa-
cilities have been put into op-
eration since the Yom Kippur
War. Today there are 649
plants and workshops in Is-
rael employing 10,200 work-
ers, while another 4,000 per-
sons are employed in service
functions for the Israel
diamond trade.
