  • Description

    IN AN AERIAL BATTLE BETWEEN SUPERSONIC JETS ON THURSDAY, A SYRIAN MIG-21 WAS SHOT DOWN BY AN ISRAELI MIRAGE IN RETALIATION FOR A SABOTAGE RAID.

    IN THE SABOTAGE RAID, BLAMED BY THE ISRAELIS ON SYRIAN INSURGENTS, A CIVILIAN WAS KILLED AND TWO SOLDIERS INJURED WHEN A MINE BLEW UP A TRUCK. THE SYRIAN ARMY DENIED ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE INCIDENT.

    THE ISRAELI AIR FORCE STRUCK BACK ON THURSDAY WITH A STRAFING RUN ON SYRIAN EQUIPMENT BEING USED TO DIVERT THE WATERS OF THE RIVER JORDAN, WHICH ALSO RUNS THROUGH ISRAEL.

    AN AIR BATTLE DEVELOPED WITH FOUR RUSSIAN-BUILT MIG-21's. SYRIA SAID THE PILOT OF THE DOWNED JET BALED TO SAFETY. SHE ALSO SAID TWO OF THE FRENCH-BUILT ISRAELI JETS WERE SHOT DOWN, BUT ISRAEL SAID ALL THE MIRAGES RETURNED TO BASE.
