    THE ISRAELI SALVAGE OPERATIONS TO RECOVER THE DAMAGED PATROL BOAT BEGAN ON THURSDAY, FOLLOWING AN AGREEMENT REACHED BETWEEN SYRIA AND ISRAEL AFTER NEGOTIATIONS BY THE UNITED NATIONS CHIEF TRUCE SUPERVISOR, LIEUTENANT GENERAL ODD BULL.

    ISRAEL CLAIMS THE BOAT CAME UNDER FIRE AFTER RUNNING AGROUND NINE DAYS AGO. THIS SPARKED OFF AN INCIDENT IN WHICH ISRAEL SAID SHE HAD SHOT DOWN TWO SYRIAN AIRCRAFT, AND SYRIA CLAIMED SHE HAD DESTROYED THREE ISRAELI PATROL BOATS.

    MEANWHILE IT WAS ANNOUNCED IN DAMASCUS THAT SYRIA HAD RECOVERED THE WRECKAGE OF THE DOWNED MIG-17 AND ALSO THE BODY OF THE PILOT. AN ISRAELI FOREIGN MINISTRY SPOKESMAN WOULD NOT COMMENT ON THE DAMASCUS REPORT.
