  • Description

    INTRODUCTION: Israel has established a new outpost in the Jordan River valley, close to the northern shores of the Dead Sea amid growing acceptance of proposals to resume the 1973 Geneva Middle East conference. The major topic at the conference would be the creation of a Palestinian state on the West Bank -- with Israel withdrawing completely.

    SYNOPSIS: The outpost, officially established on Tuesday (25 January), was named "Nahal Almog" after the Israeli pioneer, Yehuda Almog, founder of the Dead Sea Potash Works and the man who was determined to turn the Dead Sea "into a sea of life". Many similar "Nahals", or military kibbutzes, have been established by young men doing National Service.

    In "Nahal Almog", the soldier-settlers have all been recruited from the Israeli Labour Party's kibbutz movement.

    Mr. Shimon Peres, Israel's Defence Minister, arrived for the flag-raising ceremony in "Nahal Almog". he was received by General Yona Efrat, representing the Central Military Command in the area.

    On the eve of the ceremony Mr. Peres told newsmen in Jerusalem that "Israel has not intention of annexing has no intention of annexing the West Bank, as Israel understands the deep historic ties between the West and East Banks of the Jordan".
