    Background: CHRISTIAN ARAB RESIDENTS OF AN ISRAELI VILLAGE HAVE ASKED FOR ARMS FOR THEIR OWN DEFENCE FOLLOWING A GUERILLA ATTACK ON THEIR VILLAGE BEFORE DAWN YESTERDAY (SATURDAY). THE VILLAGE, GUSH-HALAV, IS IN NORTHERN ISRAEL, A LITTLE OVER TWO MILES (4 KMS) FROM THE LEBANESE BORDER.

    THE ATTACK IS BELIEVED TO BE THE FIRST STRIKE BY ARAB GUERILLAS AGAINST AN ARAB VILLAGE IN ISRAEL.

    TWO HOUSES WERE DAMAGED IN THE RAID. A THIRD EXPLOSIVE CHARGE WAS LATER FOUND BY POLICE AND WAS DISMANTLED BEFORE IT COULD NO ANY HARM. THERE WERE NO CASUALTIES.

    THE VILLAGE IS INHABITED BY CHRISTIAN MARONITES SECT, WHOSE MAIN CENTRE IS IN LEBANON.

    MEMBERS OF THE SECT ARE CONSIDERED TO BE LOYAL TO ISRAEL, AND MANY YOUNG MEMBERS ARE SERVING IN THE ARMY OR POLICE FORCES.

    THE GUSH-HALAV AREA COMPRISES THE LARGEST CONCENTRATION OF MEMBERS OF THE SECT IN ISRAEL.

    LATER, SECT LEADERS AND MEMBERS OF THE VILLAGE COUNCIL INSPECTED THE DAMAGE, BEFORE ATTENDING AN EMERGENCY LOCAL COUNCIL MEETING TO DISCUSS THE ATTACK.
