The article reports that the safest border of Israel has become violent due to the civil war. It says that Palestinian Leader Yasser Arafat ordered his forces to move in the area but the Israeli government contradicted the idea as well as accepting Syrian soldiers and Arab peacekeepers in the Israeli border. It states that Syrian soldiers are not in the position to engage with Israel because they are needed to protect the oil refinery that has resumed its operation. It also mentions that the Israelis formed an anti-Palestinian force consisting of Christians and Shiite Moslems, in which Israeli patrols support them in keeping the guerillas from passing the border.
