IDF Tries to Halt Fighting Between Druze, Christians

rael Defense Force units
went into action Monday
with artillery and tank fire
east of Beirut in an effort to
stop the heavy shelling by
Druze on Christian posi-
tions near the presidential
residence on the outskirts of
the Lebanese capital.
Five Lebanese civilians
were reported killed and 10
wounded in the exchanges
between the Druze and
Christian forces.
Meanwhile, Israeli posi-
tions and patrols came
under fire as a result of the
continuing fighting be-
tween the Christians and
Druze over the past few
days. There were no Israeli
casualties. Israeli forces
shot and killed a terrorist
after he had fired two
Katyusha rockets at an Is-
raeli position north of Tyre
Sunday night, the army
spokesman said.
Meanwhile, Defense
Minister Moshe Arens told
an Israel Bond conference
that the Lebanese govern-
ment was not doing enough
to arrange a settlement be-
tween the warring Druze
and Christians in the Shouf
mountains, or to coordinate
with Israel over the rede-
ployment of the Israel De-
fense Force from the Shouf
area to the Awali River line
in the south.

Arens, who visited the
Beirut area last week,
said that the feelings
among the Lebanese
people, as he experienced
them, were that they "live
in fear of their lives, are
afraid of tomorrow, are
suspicious and afraid of
their neighbors or other

ethnic groups, and see
the dangers of a buildup
of a possible new cycle of

The defense minister
cautioned, "Too much time
has passed, and not enough
time is left. A political ac-
cord with the Druze must be
reached. It requires inten-
sive negotiations which
must be begun this very
moment, and carried out so
that the accord can be ac-
complished before we

In addition, Arens con-
tinued, "it is essential that
the Lebanese armed forces
coordinate very closely with
the IDF so that when we
leave the area a vacuum
will not be left behind, and
that there can be a smooth
transition with the
Lebanese armed forces tak-
ing over our positions,
rather than the Syrians or
the PLO coming into the
area in the wake of our
However, Arens said, "In

the light of the lack of ac-
tivity which we sense from
the government in Beirut in
these two spheres, we can-
not make our redeployment
contingent on these objec-
tives being met."
At the conclusion of the
nine-day 35th anniversary
international Israel Bond
conference last week,
attended by 500 Bond lead-
ers, it was reported that Is-
rael Bond receipts for 1983
have passed the $300 mil-
lion mark.
