Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 1, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta JVexf Arab-Israeli war may result in nuclear confrontation By DANA ADAMS SCHMIDT Christian Science Monitor WASHINGTON. D.C. U.S. intelligence sources believe that the fourth Arab- Israeli war has resulted in a confrontation between Egypt and Israel on the level of nuclear warheads. While this information can- not be officially and is sure to be intelligence sources believe it to be nonetheless. On the Israeli ac- cording to the best informa- tion there are some 60 300-mile range Jericho mis- siles. While these could be armed with conventional the Israelis are believed to have ready to put and may indeed have actually put at least eight nuclear warheads. All these mis- siles and have been built by the Israelis themselves in Israel. On the Egyptian com- parable weapons in Soviet military hands are believed to have reached Egypt during the recent war in response to insistent Egyptian demands that they be given at least as much in offensive weapons as the Israelis have. Moscow previously has held back on offensive weapons. This was the cause of the break in the summer of when President Anwar Sadat ordered the Russians out of Egypt. The nuclear warheads in the opinion of intelligence be the Russians' attempt to find a basis for resuming their former position in Egypt. American intelligence has been almost certain since Nov. 2 that 20 Scud type mis- siles with a range of up to 180 miles were delivered to Egypt. Since then careful shadowing of Soviet ships entering the Mediterranean from the Black Sea and travelling to Egyptian ports has confirmed that several vessels carried nuclear materials to Egypt. Some of the material is believed to have been unload- ed under the supervision of a special Soviet military unit. How much was unloaded is un- known. The Russians never have given away or sold any nuclear any more than the U.S. has. But the Russians have mis- siles with nuclear warheads in .Eastern European much as the U.S. stations such weapons in Germany. The U.S. is taking an intense interest in these Mideast developments because of im- for the possible es- calation of the Middle Eastern conflict. Thus neither Russians nor Egyptians nor Israelis have been willing to acknowledge any part of what American intelligence believes to have taken place. The magazine Aviation Week said on Nov. 5 that satellite photographs proved that two brigades of mobile Soviet Scud missiles had been unloaded in Egypt. The photographs were un- doubtedly the source of this in- formation. Both the Israeli and the Soviet missiles are believed to be so costly that it is unlikely they would have been built exclusively to carry conventional warheads. Israel has declined thus far to sign the nuclear non- proliferation but the Israelis have said that they would never be first to use nuclear weapons. Egypt has signed the agreement but such weapons in the hands of Russians would presumably not constitute a violation. The Uthbridtje Herald VOL.
