Israel To Launch
Spy Satellite

Jerusalem (JTA) —
Criticism of the performance
of Israel's intelligence ser-
vices during the Persian
Gulf crisis produced a sur-
prise announcement by
Defense Minister Moshe
Arens: He told the Knesset
that Israel would soon laun-
ch its own spy satellite.
The disclosure was the
first mention of the device in
public by a senior Cabinet
member. Israel has launched
two experimental com-
munications satellites over
the past two years. The se-
cond was launched last
April, a day after Saddam
Hussein threatened to
destroy half of Israel with
chemical weapons.
But neither of the
satellites possessed intel-
ligence capabilities.
Opposition politicians
have berated the govern-
ment for its need during the
Gulf war to rely on U.S.
satellite data for intelligence
about Iraqi Scud missile
Mr. Arens maintained that
Israel's intelligence was up
to date throughout the Per-
sian Gulf crisis. He said that
he had in fact relayed infor-
mation to U.S. Defense Sec-
retary Dick Cheney before
the Gulf war began on Jan.
The Knesset Foreign Af-
fairs and Defense Com-
mittee decided nevertheless
to establish a subcommittee
to study the functioning of
the intelligence community
during the recent hostilities.

Rains Hit Israel,
Shortage Yet

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Fierce
wind and rainstorms sweep-
ing Israel last weekend took
at least nine lives and in-
jured nearly 100 people.
Most of the casualties were
the result of road accidents
and drownings. Damage to
electricity and telephone
lines and highways was
estimated at millions of
The storm struck after a
week of mild, summerlike
Six died in highway ac-
cidents and more than 90
were injured, 20 seriously,
as vehicles skidded on
rainslick pavements.
The downpour dropped 2
inches of rain in the Tel Aviv
area and nearly 5 inches in
northern Israel in a 24 hour
period. But it did little to
relieve the drought condi-
tions caused by three suc-
cessive dry winters.
