  • Description

    Military equipment captured during clashes with Arab forces will go on display when Israel celebrates its Independence Day this week. A special parade and decorations have been laid on to mark the 20th anniversary of the foundation of the Jewish state.

    The captured arms were assembled today (Sunday) for inclusion in the Parade later this week. A military spokesman said that some of the captured equipment would go into service with Israeli defence force units after the parade.

    The captured equipment includes heavy and amphibious tanks, anti-aircraft guns, machine guns, a Soviet-made SAM missile, and various rifles, grenades and mortars.

    The material has been allegedly captured from Egyptian, Syrian and Jordanian forces.

    Today there was a new outbreak of violence when an Israeli patrol fought an Arab guerilla band near Jericho. According to an Israeli army spokesman the guerrilas lost 13 men and two Israelis were killed.
