  • Description

    Vital supplies, driven through Israeli lines by United Nations troops, are continuing to reach the encircled Egyptian Third Army on the East Bank of the Suez Canal. Not far away at Checkpoint 101, General Yariv for Israel and General Gamasy for Egypt struggled on Thursday (November 22nd), to settle the thorniest point of the six-point peace plan -- the exact location of the October 22nd ceasefire line.

    UN troops drove 20 trucks full of supplies to the West Bank of the Suez Canal on Thursday (November 22nd). Troops came across in barges to collect them. They were thoroughly searched. The ceasefire along the Canal is considered by the UN troops to be fragile, and correspondents were warned to keep under cover.

    General Yariv and General Gamasy met on Thursday for the fifth time since the peace was signed. At the end of the meeting General Gamasy said. "There is some difference in our thought, but we are still trying." They have reached agreement on four of the six points in the peace plan but have faltered on the strict observance of the ceasefire and on what Israeli Prime Minister, Mrs. Meir, has described as the 'most mysterious line in the world' - that is, the exact location of the October 22nd ceasefire line. Both sides have agreed to withdraw to this line.
