    The Bar Lev Line, Israel's defensive position on the west side of the Suez Canal, is now stronger than it was before the ceasefire. This is the general opinion of the after the 90 day cease-fire of on came to an end yesterday night.

    Basic maintenance and repair projects have been completed, and if the ceasefire will not be renewed (the second time) the fortifications will be able to withstand any weapons the Egyptians might use against them, it is learned.

    Optimum safety measures have been made. Learning from the past-where most losses resulted from men being caught in the open all auxiliary services, including kitchens, messrooms, showers and toiled have been incorporated into the shell-proof parts of the fortifications-damaged roads have been mended. There will no longer be any need to send water by truck to the units, which can draw there own supply from the pipeline.
