  • Description

    A SOLDIER AND SEVEN CIVILIANS, INCLUDING A WOMAN, WERE WOUNDED WHEN ISRAELI FIGHTER JETS YESTERDAY (25 OCTOBER) TWICE ATTACKED JUBEIHA AREA, A FEW KILOMETRES WEST OF AMMAN.

    FOUR ISRAELI AIRCRAFT TOOK PART IN THE FIRST RAID, WHICH LASTED FIVE MINUTES, WHILE 13 JETS TOOK PART IN THE 20-MINUTE SECOND ATTACK.

    STUDENTS OF NEARBY JORDAN UNIVERSITY WHO SAW THE ATTACK SAID ABOUT 20 ISRAELI ROCKETS POUNDED INTO A DAIRY FARM. SEVERAL SMASHED INTO THE CAMPUS AREA ITSELF, BREAKING WINDOWS.

    JORDANIAN GROUND FIRE ENGAGED THE AIRCRAFT THROUGHOUT THE RAIDS.

    ISRAELI RETALIATION AGAINST AMMAN HAD BEEN EXPECTED AFTER THE WAVE OF BOMB EXPLOSIONS IN HAIFA THIS WEEK FOR WHICH TWO AMMAN-BASED COMMANDO GROUPS CLAIMED RESPONSIBILITY.

    ALTHOUGH ISRAELI AIRCRAFT MAKE OCCASIONAL RECONNAISSANCE FLIGHTS OVER THE JORDANIAN CAPITAL, YESTERDAY'S RAID WAS THE FIRST ON THE AMMAN AREA THIS YEAR.
