    Background: RUSSIAN AND CZECH WEAPONS - CAPTURED BY ISRAELI TROOPS IN RECENT BATTLES WITH SYRIAN FORCES ON THE EASTERN SHORES OF LAKE TIBERIAS - WERE SHOWN TO MILITARY ATTACHES AND NEWSMEN IN TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, MAR 19. THE LAKE, OR SEA OF GALILEE, IS NEAR THE SYRIA-JORDAN BORDER.

    THE RUSSIAN-MADE ARMS THE SYRIANS WERE USING COMPRISED AUTOMATIC RIFLES, MEDIUM MACHINE GUNS, 82MM RECOILLESS GUNS AND 82MM BAZOOKAS. ALL HAD RUSSIAN MARKING, AS DID GAS MASKS OF A NEW TYPE. THE CZECH WEAPONS WERE 9MM MACHINE GUNS.

    THE ISRAELIS CLAIMED TO HAVE ACHIEVED THEIR OBJECTIVE BY CAPTURING AND DESTROYING SYRIAN POSITIONS AT NUQEIB, FROM WHICH ISRAEL FISHING AND POLICE BOATS AND SETTLEMENTS IN THE AREA HAD BEEN HARASSED. THE EXCHANGES ALSO FOLLOW ARAB TALK OF STOPPING ISRAEL PREPARATIONS TO PUMP AWAY WATER AT THE WESTERN END OF THE LAKE.

    ISRAEL COMMENTS SPEAK OF RIGHTS IN ISRAEL'S "SOVEREIGN AREA" - THE SYRIANS SAY THE ISRAELIS HAVE BEEN VIOLATING OR THREATENING A DEMILITARIZED ZONE ON LAND OR WATER. A CEASE-FIRE IS NOW IN EFFECT AFTER UNITED NATIONS REPRESENTATIVES STRIVED TO ARRANGE IT.

    LOSSES WERE SUFFERED IN THE ATTACKS BY BOTH SYRIA AND ISRAEL, BUT ACCOUNTS CONFLICT. BOTH JORDAN AND IRAQ HAVE OFFERED SUPPORT FOR SYRIA (NOW SECEDED FROM THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC) AGAINST ANY FURTHER ISRAELI "AGGRESSION".
