    Background: Arab, Bedouin and Druze soldiers serving in the Israeli army carried out a series of manoeuvres in the Sinai desert on Monday (4 November).

    The manoeuvres were carried out in conjunction with other frontline units engaged in massive military exorcises aimed at learning the lessons of the October war of 1973.

    The Israel Military Command has been going over the progress of the 1973 Arab offensive and the Israeli counter-offensive to find out that went wrong with the country's defence mechanisms.

    The exercises -- in the Sinai Desert, the Jordan Valley and the Gelan Heights -- have been marked by closer cooperation between infantry, artillery, armour and air force units.

    The significance of the exercises has been increased recently by the heightened tension between Israel and the Palestinian guerrillas, and the decisions of the Arab Summit conference in Rabat.

    Of the non-Isrealis taking part in the exercises, the Druze are conscripted for military service ,while the Arabs and Bedouins are Volunteers.
