  • Description

    As military activity continues on both sides of the Syrian-Israeli border with mounting tension on both sides), Israel has stepped up security patrols on all its borders and in major towns, including Jerusalem, to guard against the possibility of guerrilla activity on the country's Independence Day on Thursday (25 April).

    Syrian forces were last reported still dub in on the Golan Heights front with tank reinforcements being moved up for more attacks on the three snow-covered peaks of Mount Hermon where Israeli forces are en???renched. Fighting for control of the mountain has been continuous for the last two weeks. Both sides are striving to dominate the strategic and historical peaks before a disengagement-of-forces agreement is reached.

    In Israel, meantime, security measures have been stepped up throughout the country to prevent feared Arab guerrilla activity on it's Independence Day. Israel celebrates the 26th anniversary of its independence on Thursday. Cars and buses on all borders are being stopped and searched and all Arab passengers have to identify themselves before being permitted to proceed further. In the cities and towns -- such as Jerusalem -- police patrols have been strengthened, and paratroopers are also patrolling the streets.
