The Pentagon on Wednesday issued new rules on personal relationships that will outlaw many Army romances and end some friendships, while upholding controversial sanctions against adultery throughout the services. After 13 months of contentious deliberations, Defense Secretary William S. Cohen ordered the Army to adopt the tougher line of the other services on "fraternization"--improper relationships between officers and enlisted personnel.

The Israeli army has given soldiers more latitude to fire on Palestinians in the occupied territories, telling troops they may shoot any armed Arab on sight, officials said Sunday. The new orders, part of a general toughening of the army's tactics in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, come in response to a series of Palestinian gun attacks on Jewish settlers in the territories.

The House Armed Services Committee voted for the first time Wednesday to authorize the Pentagon to allow women pilots to fly fighters and bombers in combat. If the provision survives, it would mark a major expansion of the role of women in the military, opening a wide gap in the historic ban on women in combat. The panel also completed its deliberations on the $278-billion 1992 Pentagon budget, voting to cancel the B-2 Stealth bomber and sharply curtail the "Star Wars" anti-missile program.

The Pentagon said it would allow soldiers' next of kin or a "designated representative" to attend as remains are transferred from planes to vehicles that carry them to the mortuary.

Avi Benayahu, a spokesman for Defense Minister Yitzhak Mordechai, said married Palestinian men ages 23 and older will now be eligible for work permits in Israel. The previous minimum was 25. The move could allow as many as 10,000 more Palestinians to work in Israel and give an additional 1,500 businesspeople permits to enter, officials said.

Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Jeremy M. Boorda said the "stand-down," which will affect 430,000 active-duty personnel, would take place in the near future.
