    Background: Israel commenced the withdrawal of three thousand five hundred troops from a twenty mile (32 Kilometre) area bordering the Suez Canal on Tuesday (3 June).

    As part of a peace-making gesture on the eve of Egypt's planned re-opening of the Suez Canal to commercial traffic, the Israelis also began an evacuation of half the tanks situated in the area, and removed most of their artillery and missiles.

    The decision to cut down the forward forces in Sinai was made at a special Israeli cabinet meeting on Monday (2 June), in an attempt, said Israel's Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, to reduce military tensions in the area.

    Witnessing the start of the withdrawal was Israeli Defence Minister Shimon Peres, who gave a brief statement.
