Moroccan and Algerian Troops of No Concern to Israel’s Security

Download PDF for this date

Moroccan and Algerian re-enforcements recently sent to Syria are of no particular concern to Israel, security circles said today. They said that about 1800 Moroccan troops and an undisclosed number of Algerians have been deployed in Syria, apparently.to bolster Syrian forces along the Israeli border.

But they will only create complications for the Syrian command, the Israeli circles said. The circles noted that the problem of coordinating command channels is a difficult one within one army and the difficulties are tripled when three armies are involved.
