  • Description

    LIKE OTHER ARAB NATIONS IN THE MIDDLE EAST, JORDAN IS PREPARING FOR THE POSSIBILITY OF WAR WITH A RECRUITING DRIVE FOR ITS ARMY. ALREADY, JORDANIAN TROOPS ARE TAKING UP POSITIONS ALONG THE JORDAN-ISRAEL BORDER AND NEW RECRUITS ARE BEING SENT FOR TRAINING IN THE AREA.

    AFTER A FEW WEEKS BASIC TRAINING, THE RECRUITS WILL TAKE UP POSITIONS ALONG JORDAN'S 400-MILE (640 KMS) FRONTIER WITH ISRAEL. IT IS THE LONGEST BORDER ANY ARAB STATE HAS WITH ISRAEL AND IS MAINLY DESERT WASTELAND, APART FROM THE POINT WHERE THE BORDER DIVIDES THE CITY OF JERUSALEM.

    YESTERDAY, JORDAN DECIDED TO CALL UP RESERVE OFFICERS OF ITS ARMED FORCES AND TO START A PUBLIC WAR FUND TO MEET THE COST OF ITS MILITARY BUILD-UP.

    EARLIER THIS WEEK, KING HUSSEIN OF JORDAN CONCLUDED A DEFENCE PACT WITH PRESIDENT NASSER OF THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC WHEREBY JORDANIAN FORCES WOULD BE AT THE DISPOSAL OF THE UAR SHOULD THERE BE WAR WITH ISRAEL.
