    ISRAELI ARTILLERY AND AIR FORCE UNITS HAVE BEEN DEPLOYED IN THE BEISAN VALLEY, NEAR THE VILLAGE OF NEVEH UR AFTER ANOTHER OUTBREAK OF FIGHTING IN THE MIDDLE EAST. ISRAELI OFFICIAL SOURCES REPORTED THAT THREE CIVILIANS WHERE KILLED AND SEVEN OTHERS WOUNDED IN THE LATEST OUTBREAK OF VIOLENCE.

    DURING THE LATE HOURS OF YESTERDAY (JUNE 4) THE BEISAN VALLEY WAS WREATHED IN SMOKE AFTER CONCENTRATED SHELLING BY JORDANIAN ARTILLERY. HEAVY PALLS OF SMOKE WERE RISING ON BOTH SIDES OF THE JORDAN RIVER AND BRUSHFIRES HAD SPREAD OVER EXTENSIVE AREAS, INTO THE HILLS WEST OF ASHDOD YAACOV AND KIBBUTZ GESHER.

    THE WORST HIT AREA APPEARED TO BE A VALLEY BEHIND THE VILLAGE OF SHUNEDH, WHERE JORDANIAN ARTILLERY UNITS WERE BELIEVED TO BE DUG IN. ABOUT 15 SHELLS WERE REPORTED TO HAVE FALLEN IN THE NEVEH UR SETTLEMENT AND A MOTHER OF THEE WAS KILLED THERE.

AND WHILE THIS WAS GOING ON, THERE REMAINED FOR THE RESIDENTS OF NEVEH UR THE TASK OF CLEANING UP AND PUTTING OUT THE FIRES CAUSED BY THE JORDANIAN SHELLING.
