  • Description

    THE SOUTH ARABIAN MINISTER FOR INTERNAL SECURITY ANNOUNCED YESTERDAY (WEDNESDAY) THAT A REPRESENTATIVE OF THE IBDALI SECTION OF THE RADFAN TRIBE HAD CONTACTED HIM IN AN EFFORT TO SECURE A TRUCE IN THE FIGHTING TO ENABLE THEM TO DISCUSS PEACE TERMS.

    AT THE SAME TIME MORE BRITISH TROOPS -- THE THIRD INDEPENDENT FIELD SQUADRON ROYAL ENGINEERS AND THE FIRST BATTALION THE ROYAL SCOTS WERE FLYING OUT FROM LYNEHAM AIR BASE IN SOUTHERN ENGLAND -- TO REINFORCE BRITISH AND SOUTHERN ARABIAN UNITS TAKING PART IN THE OPERATIONS. THE TROOP TRANSPORTS LEFT AT 2-HOURLY INTERVALS THROUGHOUT WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY.

    A BRITISH MINISTRY OF DEFENCE ANNOUNCEMENT SAYS THEY'LL LESSEN THE BURDEN ON TROOPS WHO HAVE BEEN IN ACTION IN GREAT HEAT OVER VERY DIFFICULT COUNTRY WITHOUT PROPER REST FOR SOME WEEKS.

    THE OVERTURE FOR A POSSIBLE TRUCE COINCIDED WITH A RELATIVELY EASY ADVANCE OF 6 MILES BY MEN OF THE THIRD PARACHUTE BATTALION, TO THE FORMER REBEL STRONGHOLD VILLAGE OF HAJIB, ON HIGH GROUND TO THE SOUTHEAST OF THE STRATEGIC WADI TAYM. THE TROOPS MET LITTLE RESISTENCE AND FOUND ON REACHING THE VILLAGE THAT THE REBELS HAD LEFT FOOD AND WATER BEHIND IN THEIR HASTE TO MAKE GOOD THEIR ESCAPE.
