Syrian gun positions opened fire this morning on Israeli workers employed on a water-piping project in the Tel Katzir area, southeast of Lake Tiberias. According to a Government spokesman here, there were no casualties among the Israelis.

The Government at once filed a complaint with the United Nations Truce Supervision Organization, which sent military observers to the scene to investigate the situation.
