    THE ROYAL AIR FORCE RECENTLY DROPPED LARGE QUANTITIES OF AMMUNITION, FOOD, BARBED WIRE AND OTHER NECESSITIES TO BRITISH TROOPS STATIONED IN LONG JAWI FOLLOWING INDONESIA'S MILITARY BUILD-UP ALONG THE BORDER.

    LONG JAWI WHICH IS SITUATED IN SARAWAK'S THIRD DIVISION, WAS THE SCENE OF MANY CLASHES BETWEEN BRITISH FORCES AND INDONESIAN TERRORISTS IN SEPTEMBER THIS YEAR.

    A LARGE BAND OF TERRORISTS WHO USED TO HIDE IN THE RUGGED JUNGLES SURROUNDING LONG JAWI HAS SHIFTED THEIR CAMP ELSEWHERE WITH THE PRESENCE OF BRITISH AND MALAYSIAN TROOPS IN THIS AREA.

    MEANWHILE, INDONESIAN AIR FORCE PLANES WERE SEEN BUZZING OVER VILLAGES NEAR THE SARAWAK-INDONESIA BORNEO BORDER WITH THE SAME MISSION OF AIR-DROPPING SUPPLIES TO THEIR TROOPS.
