New U.S. Central Command
Post for Middle East Region
WASHINGTON (JTA) —
The Department of Defense
has announced a new cen-
tral command to deal with
the possibility of military
dangers in the Middle East
which includes Egypt but
Israel along with Syria
and Lebanon will continue
to be dealt with under the
European command which
is headquartered in West
A Pentagon spokesman
explained that Israel was
excluded because it is con-
sidered part of the Mediter-
ranean area. He said the
new command is basically a
Southwest Asia command
and Egypt was included be-
cause it borders on the Red
Sea and Sudan.
The new command,
which will have its head-
quarters at the Macdill
Air Force base in Tampa,
Fla., will include 230,000
people from all branches
of the U.S. military.
The new command covers
Egypt, Sudan, Somalia and
the Persian Gulf countries,
