New War Threats Extend Israel's Defensive Plans

(Continued from Page 1)
Health Minister Israel Bar-
zilai, said that in the next six
months there will be either a
further improvement in Is-
raeli-Arab relations or an-
other war. He said Israel can-
not stand on the status quo
following the disengagement
greements.
Peres told the Knesset that
the Soviet Union was also
supplying the terrorist organ-
izations with arms and equip-
nt. He said other East
i. opean countries as well as
/- Syria, Libya and Iraq were
31so providing the terrorists
' with weapons presumably
with the knowledge of the
Soviet Union.
The fear of an outbreak of
a new war centers on Israeli
intelligence reports that Syria
is planning another attack
,:.oupled with the heavy Soviet
military buildup of t hat
country. At the same time,
the Israelis have been point-
Ing to Syria's failure to begin
rebuilding and repopulating
' the Kuneitra area on the
Golan Heights and the slow-

down of Egyptian efforts to
return the Suez Canal area
to normal civilian life. Israe-
lis have stressed that a re-
turn to normalization of the
two areas as provided in the
disengagement agreements
would be proof of Arab will-
ingness to reach a Mideast
settlement.
Another cause of concern
in Israel was the arrival of
King Faisal of Saudi Arabia
in Cairo for a nine-day visit
to Egypt. Faisal crossed the
Suez Canal Thursday to see
the positions Egyptian troops
have taken up since the Is-
raeli - Egyptian ,disengage-
ment agreement. The main
purpose of his visit is report-
edly to discuss with Egyptian
President Anwar Sadat how
Saudi oil wealth and diplo-
matic leverage can be com-
bined with Egyptian military
strength in support of the
Arab cause against Israel.
Sadat is expected to seek
Faisal's support in his at-
tempt to reconcile King Hus-
sein of Jordan with the Pal-
estinian terrorists.
The warnings of a new war
began picking up in intensity
here Tuesday when Gen.
Mordehai Gur, the chief of
staff, told a meeting here
of the Israel - American
Chamber of Commerce that
the Arabs could start a new
war by the end of the year.
He stressed that Israel must
prepare itself spiritually,
mentally and organizationally
for the eventuality of a new
war. His warning followed a
similar one from Peres in a
television interview. Their
remarks are seen as part of
an effort to convince the mil-
itary and the public of the
seriousness of the situation
and the need for all-out pre-
paredness.
As part of the new pre-
paredness, the army extended
its work day as of Wednes-
day, to run until darkness.
More reserves are scheduled
to be called up, particularly
those in storage and main-
tenance who will be working
around the clock in order
that combat vehicles should
be ready for use. The army
is also preparing for trial
call-ups of reserve units and
at least one will be conduct-
ed over the radio.
As part of the increased
preparedness of the military
in the wake of renewed war
threats, the Nahal units have
been ordered to increase the
time spent on military exer-
cises. Nahal is a corps of
the army whose members ,
live in border settlements
devoting part of their time to

agriculture and part to mili-
tary defense.
New methods have enabled
the time devoted to agricul-
ture to be shortened.
The army has put a prior-
ity on readying tanks, armor-
ed cars and other vehicles for
combat. Reserves who are
garage mechanics in private
life have been called up to
beef up the regular main-
tenance units.
A visit to a maintenance
unit showed that each tank
needs between 800 and 1,000
working hours to put it into
service. In addition to the
tanks damanged or over-used
during the war, necessary al-
terations are being made on
the hundreds of Soviet tanks
captured in the Yom Kippur
War.
The afternoon newspaper
Yediot Ahronot, in an edi-
torial Tuesday, said Gur's
statement was a warning to
the Arabs that if they should
prevent renewal of the ar-
rangement for United Nations
forces in the buffer zone, this
could mean war. Gur said
that if the UN was ousted
from the buffer zone Israel
would have to decide wheth-
er "to wait for a second move
by the Arabs or shall we be
the first to strike."
Syrian President Hafez As-
sad's regime is extremist in
nature. The ruling Baath
Party is a minority party
which rules over the masses.
To maintain power, the Syrian
government has to have a
massive supply of weapons.
The Soviet Union has come
to the aid of the Baathists.
Seeing that the party may
lose ground at home as it has
lost ground among the Arab
states to Egypt, the Soviet
Union has switched its Major

Federation Finally
Aids Kansas City
Jewish Day School

KANSAS CITY (JTA) —
The board of the Jewish Fed-
eration and Council, respon-
ing to a committee report
that Kansas City was the
only sizable Jewish com-
munity whose federation was
not providing financial aid
to a Jewish day school, has
voted to provide such aid to
the Hebrew Academy of
Greater Kansas City:
Federation help will be in
the form of tuition scholar-
ships to the academy, the
only Hebrew day school in
Greater Kansas City.

I aid efforts from Egypt to Syr-
ia. While hardly a Soviet ship
has come to an Egyptian port
since the Yom Kippur War,
Syrian ports are filled with
Russian ships unloading steel,
tanks, artillery, planes and
sophisticated missiles.
- Materially, the Syrian army
has been making great strides,
and it may now be the strong-
est air-power in the Arab
world. Syria lost 222 of its
300 war planes in the Yom
Kippur War but it now has
some 400 planes, and its air
force is now believed to be
stronger than the Egyptian
air force.
Syria also has been given
by the Soviets at least 24
MIG-23s, the newest and most
sophisticated of the Russion
planes, and 200 MIG-21s, the
first-line interceptor. It has
the lethal, mobile anti - air-
craft SAM-6 missiles which
were successful against Is-
raeli planes during the war,
and has 40 missile batteries
and many tanks, although
they may be lacking tank
crews. Syria lost 1,100 tanks
in the war, but it has received
900 newer and better ones
from the Soviets.
The Syrian army is being
continually trained by some
3,000 Soviet technical advi-
sers and instructors, most of

whom
in Syria after
the Yom Kippur War.
Efforts are being made to
dissuade Jordan from joining
the Syrians. The recent state-
ment by King Hussein and
Egyptian President Anwar
Sadat in which Sadat agreed
that Hussein represents the
Palestinians, may indicate an
attempt on Sadat's part to
keep Hussein on his side and
not to force him into war,
which is apparently the in-
tention of the Syrians.
