  • Description

    ARMOURED ISRAELI PATROLS ARE KEEPING A CONSTANT WATCH ALONG THE WEST BANK OF THE RIVER JORDAN, ESPECIALLY AT THE SITE OF THE CLASH WITH JORDANIAN FORCES ON TUESDAY (21 NOVEMBER).

    THE PATROLS ARE MADE UP OF ARMOURED CARS AND JEEPS MOUNTED WITH HEAVY GUNS. THEY TRAVEL ALONG THE LINE AT WHICH THE ISRAELI ADVANCE HALTED AFTER THE JUNE WAR.

    OUR FILM SHOWS A PATROL AT THE SCENE OF THIS WEEK'S CLASH..IT WAS THE BIGGEST BETWEEN ISRAEL AND JORDAN SINCE THE WAR.

    EACH SIDE ACCUSED THE OTHER OF STARTING THE INCIDENT. A JORDANIAN MILITARY SPOKESMAN SAID AN ISRAELI JET WAS SHOT DOWN AFTER IT STRAFED A REFUGEE CAMP ON THE EAST BANK.

    ISRAEL CLAIMED THAT HER FORCES WENT INTO ACTION AFTER JORDANIAN ARTILLERY OPENED FIRE ACROSS THE RIVER. A SPOKESMAN SAID THAT SIX JORDANIAN TANKS WERE DESTROYED, AND ONE ISRAELI SOLDIER KILLED AND ANOTHER WOUNDED.
