    Background: Along the Israel-Lebanon border...100 miles (160 kms) north of Tel Aviv... the atmosphere daily grows tenser. Israeli settlers in the string of border communities, many of them only a few yards form the frontier, see a real danger of new military activity, inspired by Syria. The settlers, the targets of Arab guerrillas in the past, are pressing the Israeli Government to take action to ensure peace is maintained in the area.

    The security fence between Israel and Syria consists of coils of wire, with a no-man's land in between. That area is often mined.

    The border roads on either sides are so close at some points that they look like dual carriageways of the same thoroughfare...separated by barbed wire, instead of the conventional grass strip.

    The Israeli roads are patrolled constantly by armoured personnel carriers packed with machinegun-carrying troops. Military activity on the other side is not visible. There is only the occasional private car.

    Arab guerrillas began their attacks on the northern communities least spring. And 57 Israeli settlers have been killed since the township of Kiryat Shmoneh was attacked in April.
