    Background: Israel's Prime Minister, Mrs. Golda Meir, left Tel Aviv today (Sept 16) for the United States where she will take up with President Nixon the alleged Egyptian-Soviet violations of the Middle East ceasefire.

    On the eve of her departure, Israel lodged its gravest complaint yet, claiming that fully-operational SAM-3 missile batteries -- possibly manned by Russians -- had been moved to within 20 miles (30km) of the Suez Canal.

    Israel regards the Suez Canal arms situation as far more serious than the issue of hi-jacked air passengers, which through its sensational aspect has recently eclipsed the ceasefire allegations.

    Israel's Foreign Minister, Mr. Abba Eban, said yesterday that his country regarded the "violations" like "A man who has dinner with somebody and keeps a close eye on the cutlery and silver to see that it is not taken away."
    Mr. Eban was at Lod Airport to see Mrs. Meir off to America, as was Gen. Moshe Dayan, the Minister for Defence.
