Background: In the first announced attack on regular Army positions since the cease fire went into effect a week earlier, Israel jets bombed and strafed posts opposite the Beisan Valley Friday (14 Aug).
Previously Israeli planes had attacked only the positions in Jordan manned by the Palestinian guerillas.
Announcing the attack, an Israeli spokesman said the targets housed units of the Jordanian Army that had helped the guerrillas in their operations in Israel.
In amman it was announced that a Jordanian soldier had been killed and seven soldiers and a civilian wounded.
Jordanian authorities permitted this filming of what they called an Administrative Army Centre. The planes dropped one and two thousand pound bombs and returned to the scene 15 minutes later to rocket the base.
Jordanian officers, insisting there are no guerrillas in the vicinity said the raid was a political raid to scuttle the cease fire.
