Israel, Ethiopia Reach
Arms-For-Jews Accord

HELEN DAVIS

Foreign Correspondent

I

srael has finalized a com-
plicated deal with the
Marxist regime of
Ethiopia to provide military
aid in exhange for the
freedom of 20,000 Jews who
remained trapped in
Ethiopia after "Operation
Moses" was aborted five
years ago.
Some 12,000 Ethiopian
Jews were airlifted out of
Ethiopia to Israel under a
cloud of secrecy before
"Operation Moses" was
abandoned due to premature
publicity.
According to a report in
the London Sunday Times
last weekend, the deal,
which comes just five weeks
after Ethiopia announced it
was restoring relations with
Israel, was hammered out in
six months of tough bargain-
ing between Israeli
negotiators and officials of
the embattled government of
President Mengistu Haile
Mariam.
The reported agreement
prepares the way for exten-
sive intelligence cooperation
between the two states and
for the delivery to Ethiopia
of Soviet ammunition and
spare parts, which had been
captured by Israel in
previous Middle East con-
flicts.
A diplomatic source in the
Ethiopian capital of Addis
Ababa was quoted as saying
that the deal also involves
the building of a runway and
an electronic listening
station for Israeli use on the
strategically positioned
Dahlak islands in the Red
Sea.
Up to 200 Israeli soldiers

and technicians are reported
to be already involved in
secretly training Ethiopian
soldiers and repairing
military hardware.
The Israeli military aid is
regarded as a replacement
for diminishing Soviet
assistance. Moscow recently
withdrew two- thirds of its
1,500-strong contingent of
military advisers and has in-
timated that it will complete
its pull-out by the end of the
year.
In addition to negotiating
an arms-for-Jews deal with
Israel, President Mengistu is
also reported to be making
overtures to the North
Koreans and the Chinese.
The Ethiopians have re-
cently suffered major
battleground reversals in
their 18-year-old war with
the Tigray People's Libera-
tion Front, which is fighting
for autonomy of Tigray, and
with the Eritrean People's
Liberation Front, which is
demanding the secession of
Eritrea from Ethiopia.
The Israeli involvement in
Ethiopia is likely to stir the
anger of aid workers in both
Tigray and Eritrea, where
four million people are fac-
ing starvation in the coming
months as a result of
drought.
In Israel, a Foreign Min-
istry spokesman was quoted
as saying that Ethiopia's
decision to restore diplo-
matic relations with Israel —
broken off after the 1973
Yom Kippur War — had "no
strings attached." If there
had been a military agree-
ment between the two
governments, he said, it was
an entirely separate matter.
A Defense Ministry
spokesman denied any
knowledge of the deal. 0
