  • Description

    VOLUNTEERS FROM ALL PARTS OF ISRAEL HAVE BEEN HELPING VILLAGERS FROM THE KIBBUTZ GADET AND EIN GEV REPAIR DAMAGE CAUSED BY SYRIAN SHELLING LAST WEEK.

    THE KIBBUTZ WAS THE SCENE OF PITCHED BATTLES BETWEEN ISRAELI AND SYRIAN AIRCRAFT ABOUT A WEEK AGO. IT WAS FOLLOWED UP BY A NEW OUTBREAK SEVERAL DAYS LATER, WHEN AN ISRAELI TRACTOR WAS SHELLED IN A NEARBY DEMILITARISED ZONE.

    IN THE EARLIER BATTLE ISRAELI TANKS AND ARTILLERY RETURNED FIRE FROM SYRIAN FORCES.

    BOTH SIDES SENT UP JET AIRCRAFT TO SUPPORT THEIR GROUND FORCES, AND THE FIRE RAGED ALL DAY.

    NOW THE WORK OF RECONSTRUCTION HAS BEGUN, WITH THE HELP OF VOLUNTEERS FROM ALL OVER ISRAEL.

    VISITING GROUPS FROM THE UNITED STATES AND EUROPE HAVE COME TO SEE THE WRECKED KIBBUTZ.

    FARMING WORK HAS BEGUN AGAIN IN THE DISPUTED AREA, BUT SO FAR THERE HAS BEEN NO SYRIAN REACTION.
