    Background: THE ISRAELIS HAVE OPENED A NEW TOURIST CENTRE AT EILAT -- ONLY ONE AND A HALF MILES ACROSS THE GULF OF AQABA FROM JORDAN. DESPITE THE EVER PRESENT DANGER OF ARAB ARTILLERY ATTACKS, THE ISRAELIS ARE CONFIDENT THE NEW RESORT WILL PROVE A POPULAR ATTRACTION.

    LAST NOVEMBER THE JORDANIANS LAUNCHED A MASSIVE ROCKET AND ARTILLERY ATTACK AGAINST THE TOWN'S 17-THOUSAND INHABITANTS. AND... ON THURSDAY, RESIDENTS WERE CLEARED FROM THE STREETS FOR A FULL-SCALE CIVIL DEFENCE EXERCISE.

    BUT, IN THE SHADOW OF THIS CONSTANT THREAT OF ATTACK, THE ISRAELIS HAVE BUILT A NUMBER OF NEW HOTELS ALONG THE WATERFRONT AND HOLIDAY BUNGALOWS CLOSE TO THE JORDANIAN BORDER.

    ALREADY HOLIDAY-MAKERS HAVE BEGUN TO ARRIVE AT THE RESORT TOWN AND ISRAELI TOURIST OFFICIALS ARE CONFIDENT THE AREA WILL PROVE A SOLID TOURIST CENTRE.
