By ED BLANCHE JERUSALEM (AP) - Premier Levi Eshkol announced a new military chief of staff Sunday while the Israeli army reported that berab saboteurs had struck twice more. Eshkol named Brig. Gen. Haim Bar-Lev, 43,' to succeed Maj. Gen. Itzhak Rabin, mastermind of Israels victory in the June 5-10 war. Some government officials said Rabin would be sent to Washington as ambassador. Defense Minister Moshe Dayan proposed Bar-Lev, a soft-spoken soldier who fathered Israels tank power, to assume command of the armed forces. Dayan also said he was happy Rabin would continue to work in the national interest, adding support to the reports of the Washington assignment. Rabin, 44, has been armed forces chief for the last four years, one year longer than usual. He built the Israeli fighting forces into the swift, hard-striking military machine that crushed the combined armies of Egypt, Jordan and Syria. In Tel Aviv Sunday an army spokesman said Arab saboteurs blew up a section of the Jerusa-lem-Tel Aviv railroad line and also hit a water tower and road equipment in a public works depot. Two saboteurs waited too long after placing ' one explosive charge and were blown to pieces. Leaflets signed by the El Fa tah terrorist movement were found near both of the raided facilities. They warned of more attacks. Throughout the Middle East, the 30-day holy month of Ramadan was under way for all Arabs. Cannon boomed out its beginning at dawn Saturday.
