  • Description

    IN A SIMPLE CEREMONY TODAY ON THE ALLENBY BRIDGE, CROSSING THE RIVER JORDAN, A GROUP OF JORDANIAN OFFICERS AND TROOPS WERE RELEASED IN EXCHANGE FOR THE BODIES OF THREE ISRAELI SOLDIERS KILLED IN RECENT FIGHTING BETWEEN ISRAEL AND JORDAN.

    THE EXCHANGE WAS CONDUCTED UNDER THE SUPERVISION OF THE INTERNATIONAL RED CROSS.

    AS THE COFFINS CARRYING THE DEAD ISRAELI SOLDIERS WERE BORNE ACROSS THE BRIDGE THE CHIEF RABBI OF THE ISRAELI FORCES, GENERAL GOREN, OFFERED PRAYERS.

    ONLY A FEW HOURS AFTER THE EXCHANGE WAS COMPLETED ISRAELI AND JORDANIAN FORCES WERE AGAIN ENGAGED IN AN EXCHANGE OF FIRE ACROSS THE JORDAN RIVER IN THE BEIT SHEAN VALLEY AREA. THE FIRING IS REPORTED TO HAVE LASTED FOR AN HOUR.
