  • Description

    Israeli and Syrian artillery and armored units in the Golan Heights exchanged fire in the Golan Heights on Sunday (31 March) for the twentieth day running.

    The fighting came as diplomatic moves were under way in Washington to negotiate a separation of the Israeli and syrian forces.

    Israeli correspondents in American quoted Defence Minister Moshe Dayan, who had talks with US Secretary of State, Dr. Honry Kissinger on Saturday (30 March), as saying the believed Syria was ready for negotiations.

    The latest stage in what Mr. Dayan has called the 'war of attrition' began before dawn yesterday. According to the Israeli Military Command, Syrian forces failed to infiltrate two reconnaissance patrols into the northern sector of the salient of territory Israel captured from Syria during the October war last years.

    Later in the day, Syrian tanks and rocket launchers went into action int he southern sector of the salient. An Israeli spokesman said the Israelis suffered no casualties.
