    Background: United States F-One-Eleven bombers pounded communist troops on Monday (23 July) who'd opened up a new front only ten minutes' drive from Phnom Penh. Khmer Government troops, dug in around the heavily-attacked Prek Ho village area, began a machine-gun attack on the communist forces, while the United States bombed north of the capital to keep guerrilla attackers fighting away from the city.

    On Tuesday (24 July), the Khmer Military command said that the United States air strikes had already killed nearly 100 communists only nine miles (15 kms) from Phnom Penh.
