At his press conference in ??? yesterday (Saturday) King Hussein said there had been no victors and no vanquished in the two days of clashes between Jordanian government forces and Palestinian commandos. He also spoke of the ??? danger of a "fresh explosion" with Israel following increased border hostilities.
During the conference, held in the cinema of the royal palace, King Hussein expressed his regret about the fighting between his troops and the guerrillas, in which 30 people were killed, according to unofficial reports. It was probably all due to a misunderstanding, he said, denying claims by the commandos that his tough internal security measures had been designed to liquidate their movement.
The King was pessimistic about the Israel-Arab situation. The chances of establishing an honourable and just peace were diminishing every day and every hour, he said.
