Present Israeli Defense Lines in Sinai

NEW YORK — Present
Israeli defense lines in the
Sinai Peninsula from Ba-
luzza in the North to Ras
Sudar on the Bay of Suez
are 100 miles long. The
sandy northern defense
lines are based on artificial
barriers erected by Israeli
engineering units, while in
the south, the defense lines
cross the crests of the
passes beginning at Urn
Mahza and Urn Hasiba.
There are at least four
and possibly five passes
through the southern
heights: the Gidi, the Mitle,
Sudar, Wadi Randal, and
further south, possibly
Wadi Jiran. These are the
corridors into the Sinai Pen-
The Gidi Pass is three
miles long, 20 miles wide.
North of the Gidi is the Urn
Hasiba crest, 1,920 feet
above sea level. Foreign
sources claim the Israelis
have installed an electronic
warning system at its sum-

The Mitle Pass is three
miles long, six miles wide.
It is the perfect ambush
site. Maneuverability is
made difficult by its nar-
row width and the crevices
rising up on either side.

There are several advan-
tages of present defense

lines in south Sinai to Is-
• Because of the passes,
the lines are relatively
• The ridges and the nar-
rowness of the passes
mean that the lines can
be defended with rela-
tively small forces.
• The swampy area north
of this line limits large
scale Egyptian maneu-
vering possibilities.
• Only small armoured
units are necessary to de-
. fend the passes; infantry
and anti-tank weapons
are sufficient.

The advantages to

Egypt of controlling the

passes are as follows:

• Need not maintain heavy
armour to defend the
Suez Canal.
• If the ridges now under
Israeli control, such as
Um Hasiba, were surren-
dered to the Egyptians,
they could, through elec-
tronic devices, monitor

not only the Sinai Penin-
sula, but extensive areas
in Israel as well. Israel,
on the other hand, would
have no electronic ad-
vance warning system.
• The surrender of the
passes to the Egyptian
army would increase the
Israel defense line from
100 miles to 220 miles
and deprive it of favora-
ble topographic posi-
• The region west of the
hills is flat terrain. If the
Egyptians took over the
passes and ridges, a
breakthrough from the
passes into the Sinai
would mean not only the
loss of strategic areas for
Israel, but also the possi-
bility of an extensive de-
ployment of Egyptian
• In addition — all move-
ments are observable
from the ridges. From
the summit of Jebel
Raha, it is possible to see

the clouds of dust raised
by Israeli tanks as far as
60 miles away.

The islands shall acclaim.
And the peoples shall go
Who knew Thee not before,
And the ends of earth shall
praise Thee,
And tell Thy greatness
o'er . . .
And all the congregations
So loud Thy praise shall
That the uttermost peoples,
Shall hail Thee crowned

Nameless Acts

Sound friendships consist
of many nameless acts.
What matters is the in-
tent—the intent to keep
alive something worthy and
mutual. This happens when
people remember each
other, cultivate each other,
meet each other a little
more than halfway. Such
are the ways in which
friendship may be shared.
Nothing on earth is more
important, for, just as it has
been said that "to lose a
friend is to die, a little," so
the reverse is also true, and
when you keep a friend you
add something to the rich-
ness and the worth of life.
—Frank V. Morley
