  • Description

    Jordanian Prime Minister Wasfi el-Tell recently received a delegation of Palestinian Elders from the northern town of Irbid, scene of fierce fighting last month between Palestinian commandos and the Jordan army, which sparked off the current crisis.

    The Elders had come to profess support for the Government and approval for its action to regain control of Irbid. The Prime Minister in return said he relied on the wise old heads among the Palestinians to preach a doctrine of unity.

    Since this event there has been more fighting, especially around Jerash (see Visnews Production 3692/71 serviced today). As National Broadcasting Company reporter Richard Hunt points out in the commentary which accompanies this film, it is the young men who do the fighting.

    An alternative commentary appears overleaf.
