    Background: ISRAEL HAS TIGHTENED ITS BORDER PATROLS ALONG ITS FRONTIER WITH THE LEBANON. THE MOVE FOLLOWS A NUMBER OF COMMANDO RAIDS WHICH THE ISRAELIS BELIEVE STARTED IN THE LEBANON. TWO ARAB COMMANDO ORGANISATIONS HAVE OFFICES IN BEIRUT, AND EARLIER THIS WEEK THEY CLAIMED A SERIES OF SUCCESSES AGAINST ISRAELI FORCES ON THE GOLAN HEIGHTS, IN JERUSALEM AND THE JORDAN VALLEY.

    UNTIL RECENTLY THERE WERE NO INCIDENTS ALONG THE BORDER BETWEEN ISRAEL AND THE LEBANON, ALTHOUGH IT WAS ESTABLISHED THAT PALESTINE LIBERATION MOVEMENTS WERE OPERATING IN BEIRUT. BUT LAST WEEK THERE WAS A BAZOOKA ATTACK ON FARMS ALONG THE BORDER, AND THE ISRAELIS SAY THEY FOUND EVIDENCE THAT SABOTEURS TRIED TO BLOW UP A BRIDGE IN THE SEARCH IN THE REGION.

    SUCCESSES CLAIMED BY ASSIFA, THE MILITARY ARM OF THE PALESTINE NATIONAL LIBERATION MOVEMENT (FATAH) THIS WEEK INCLUDE THE SHOOTING DOWN OF A HELICOPTER. ACCORDING TO AN ASSIFA COMMUNIQUE THE HELICOPTER WAS SHOT DOWN OVER ISRAELI TERRITORY AND IN THE CLASH THAT FOLLOWED 15 ISRAELI SOLDIERS WERE KILLED OR WOUNDED. THE COMMUNIQUE SAID TWO ARABS COMMANDOS WERE WOUNDED.
