    Background: At Jerusalem's Wailing Wall, and also the northern frontier area close to the Lebanon, security precautions were intensified by the authorities on Friday (8 Sept) in fear of reprisals stemming from Israeli bombing attacks on suspected guerrilla strongholds. Police and military officials were concerned that Jewish New Year's Eve movements and activities might provide a cover for counter-attacks, and authorised the greatly increased security patrols to make frequent and thorough checks on people, vehicles and baggage at regular intervals.
