  • Description

    An hour-long procession of Israel's armed forces paraded past President ben Zwi and Premier Ben Gurion in Haifa May 2, in celebration of the 12th anniversary of Israeli Independence.

    Several items of military equipment new to Israeli's armoury- including a mobile unit of French anti-tank guided missiles - were given a great welcome by the 250,000 spectators lining the six-kilometre route.

    Recent development in the Middle East arms situation are causing concern in Israel, and Army spokesmen in Tel-Aviv have openly stated that Israeli forces are being re-organised to meet the new situation.
