    Background: One of the Israel Army's most potent weapons against guerrilla activity is the Engineer Corps. In the skirmishing that followed the Six Day War, the sappers have played an increasingly important role. They're the men who are called upon to clear guerrilla mines, and to help prepare the way for Israel's retaliatory raids against her Arab neighbours.

    The motto of the engineers is "Be exact, be disciplined and be on top at all times." Visnews cameraman Rolf Kneller filmed them living up to their watchword during a tough training course in the desert.
