Israel Resumes Work Near Lake Tiberias; Syrians Re-group Forces

Work was resumed without incident this morning at Tel Katzir, the Israeli settlement near Lake Tiberias which was subjected to repeated attacks from Syrian positions before heavy rains interrupted work in the region two weeks ago. The land plowed today included those areas which were set afire by the Syrians in the last incident on December 4.

During the past few days, Syrians were seen re-grouping their forces apparently in preparation for a possible resumption of work in fields on the Israel side. Israel, meanwhile, determined to cultivate those areas and informed the United Nations that it would take all necessary measures should the Syrians interfere.
