    Script is copyright Reuters Limited. All rights reserved

    Background: ISRAELI FORCES MADE A THREE-PRONGED ATTACK AT TARGETS ACROSS THE JORDAN BORDER LAST NIGHT (THURSDAY).THIS WAS ANNOUNCED BY AN ISRAELI ARMY SPOKESMAN, WHO SAID THE ATTACKS WERE REPRISALS FOR RAIDS BY JORDANIAN SABOTEURS ACROSS THE ISRAELI BORDER.HE SAID NINE SUCH RAIDS HAD BEEN MADE IN THE PAST SIX MONTHS - SEVERAL OF THEM AGAINST ISRAEL'S WATER INSTALLATIONS.

    THE ISRAELI SPOKESMAN SAID CARE HAD BEEN TAKEN TO KEEP CASUALTIES TO A MINIMUM, AS THE ATTACKS WERE INTENDED ONLY AS A "TANGIBLE WARNING".BUT THIS MORNING, A JORDANIAN SPOKESMAN SAID THAT FOUR PEOPLE HAD BEEN KILLED, INCLUDING TWO CHILDREN.HE ACCUSED ISRAEL OF "PROVOCATIVE OPERATIONS".

    SYNOPSIS: THE BORDER BETWEEN ISRAEL AND SYRIA -- WHERE INCIDENTS HAVE MOST OFTEN BEEN REPORTED IN RECENT MONTHS, BECAUSE OF THE JORDAN WATER DISPUTE.THE STREAMS THAT FEED THE RIVER JORDAN RISE IN SYRIA AND LEBANON, AND THESE COUNTRIES HAVE PLANS TO DIVERT THE HEADWATERS FOR THEMSELVES AND AWAY FROM ISRAEL.

    SO THE UNITED NATIONS EMERGENCY FORCE - STATIONED EVER SINCE THE SUEZ CRISIS TO KEEP THE PEACE ON THE ISRAELI-ARAB BORDERS - IS ALWAYS ON THE ALERT FOR ANY NEW FLARE-UP.SOMETIMES THERE IS HEAVY SHELLING.IN AN INCIDENT LAST NOVEMBER VILLAGES AND SETTLEMENTS ON BOTH SIDES WERE DAMAGED.ISRAEL AND SYRIA EACH ACCUSED THE OTHER; A UNITED NATIONS REPORT FOUND THE FIGHTING HAD BEGUN BECAUSE OF DOUBT OVER THE EXACT WHEREABOUTS OF THE BORDER.

    ACROSS ON THE SYRIAN SIDE, A ROAD IS BEING BUILT.BUT THE ISRAELIS, FROM THEIR SIDE OF THE BORDER, WATCH CLOSELY; THERE ARE REPORTS THAT THE SYRIANS HAVE STARTED WORK FOR THEIR DIVERSION SCHEME.

    DOWNSTREAM IS THE SEA OF GALILEE (NOW CALLED LAKE KINNERET) WHERE ISRAEL DRAWS OFF SOME OF THE WATER TO SEND IT BY CANAL AND PIPELINE A HUNDRED & FIFTY MILES TO THE PARCHED NEGEV IN THE SOUTH.

    HERE THE WATER IS BRINGING NEW LIFE TO THE BARREN SOIL, BUT THE YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN WHO CULTIVATE IT WORK UNDER THE WATCHFUL EYE OF ARMED GUARDS; FOR THIS FARM IS RIGHT BESIDE THE EGYPTIAN FRONTIER.

    IT WAS IN THIS PART OF THE COUNTRY NINE YEARS AGO THAT RAIDS FROM ACROSS THE BORDER BY FEDAYEEN, OR COMMANDOS, LED ISRAEL TO THE INVASION OF EGYPT THAT SPARKED OFF THE SUEZ CRISIS.SO A CAREFUL WATCH IS KEPT AS THE WORK OF RECLAIMING THE DESERT GOES STEADILY ON.

    FARMING IN THE BORDER AREA IS OFTEN DONE BY YOUNG MEN AND GIRLS OF THE NACHAL, WHICH STANDS FOR "PIONEERING FIGHTING YOUTH".THEY HAVE BOTH MILITARY AND AGRICULTURAL TRAINING.

    WHEN THEY COME TO THEIR KIBBUTZ - THEIR COMMUNAL HOME - THE YOUNG PEOPLE ALREADY KNOW EACH OTHER, FOR THEY HAVE DONE THEIR SERVICE AND FARMING TRAINING TOGETHER AS A GROUP.IT COUNTS FOR COMPULSORY NATIONAL SERVICE, WHICH IS 26 MONTHS FOR MEN AND 20 FOR UNMARRIED GIRLS.

    THE NACHAL EMBLEM, SYMBOLISING FIGHTING AND FARMING.

    WHEN THEY HAVE FINISHED SUPPER, THE YOUNG FIGHTING FARMERS GET READY FOR AN EVENING PATROL ALONG THE BORDER.ALL THE FIT MEN IN NACHAL HAVE NOT ONLY DONE ORDINARY RECRUIT TRAINING AND INFANTRY DUTY; THEY SPEND FIVE AND A HALF MONTHS WITH THE AIRBORNE CORPS TO QUALIFY AS PARATROOPERS.

    THERE ARE NEARLY FIVE THOUSAND UNITED NATIONS TROOPS ON THE BORDER - MANY OF THEM AT LONELY OUTPOSTS LIKE THIS ONE IN THE GAZA STRIP.THIS AREA WAS OCCUPIED BY EGYPT IN 1948, THEN BY ISRAEL IN 1956.ISRAEL AGREED TO WITHDRAW THE FOLLOWING SPRING AT UNITED NATIONS REQUEST.

    THE ISRAELI ARMY HAS BRITISH CENTURIAN TANKS AND AMERICAN M-48S.THE AMERICAN SUPPLIES CAME FROM WEST GERMANY.THE ARMS RACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST HAS CAUSED WIDESPREAD CONCERN AS A SERIOUS DANGER TO PEACE.

    WESTERN INTELLIGENCE DEPARTMENTS BELIEVE THAT EGYPT.SYRIA AND IRAQ HAVE RECEIVED MORE THAN TWO THOUSAND TANKS AND NINE HUNDRED MILITARY AIRCRAFT FROM THE SOVIET UNION AND CZECHOSLOVAKIA OVER THE PAST TEN YEARS.

    ONE GREAT CITY - JERUSALEM - LIES RIGHT ON THE BORDER.THE MODERN TOWN IS ISRAEL'S CAPITAL.THE PARLIAMENT, GOVERNMENT OFFICES, CHIEF UNIVERSITY, ARE ALL HERE.THEN THE BOUNDARY....

    THE OLD CITY - HOLY CITY FOR CHRISTIANS, JEWS AND MOSLEMS ALIKE, IS ACROSS THE GUARDED, SANDBAGGED FRONTIER IN THE KINGDOM OF JORDAN.

    WALLS HAVE BEEN PUT UP TO PREVENT THE CHILDREN BEING HIT BY STRAY BULLETS - CHILDREN WHO CAN ONLY LOOK AT THE "FORBIDDEN TERRITORY" ON THE OTHER SIDE.

    THE WHITE UNITED NATIONS TRUCKS ARE THE ONLY VEHICLES ALLOWED BACKWARDS AND FORWARDS ACROSS THE NARROW STRIP OF "NO-MAN'S LAND".AS THEY GO ABOUT THEIR CEASELESS TASK OF KEEPING THE PEACE ALONG THESE NERVOUS FRONTIERS.
