    THE AMERICAN STATE DEPARTMENT TODAY (FRIDAY) REPROVED ISRAEL FOR CARRYING OUT ARMED REPRISALS AGAINST JORDAN. IT SAID IT DEPLORED THE USE OF FORCE IN ISRAELI-JORDAN RELATIONS AND ADDED THAT ANY PROVOCATIONS OR VIOLATIONS OF THE ARMISTICE THERE SHOULD BE DEALT WITH BY UNITED NATIONS MACHINERY IN THE AREA.

    ISRAELI FORCES STRUCK TARGETS IN JORDAN IN A THREE-PRONGED ATTACK LAST NIGHT "IN REPRISAL FOR RECENT ATTACKS IN ISRAELI CITIZENS." AN ANNOUNCEMENT FROM TEL AVIV, WHICH MADE NO MENTION OF RESISTANCE FROM JORDANIAN FORCES, SAID THE RAIDERS DEMOLISHED THE EL FATAH SABOTEURS' BASE IN SHUNA 2 MILES (ABOUT 3 KILOMETRES) EACH OF THE JORDAN RIVER.

    THIS YEAR, ISRAEL HAS COMPLAINED OF A NUMBER OF JORDANIAN ATTACKS ON CIVILIANS, THE LATEST OF THESE WAS A BOMB INCIDENT YESTERDAY AT AFOULA, NEAR THE JORDAN LINES. A WOMAN AND TWO CHILDREN WERE REPORTED TO B INJURED.

    THE U.S. STATE DEPARTMENT STATEMENT SAID: "THERE IS ESTABLISHED UNITED NATIONS MACHINERY - THE U.N. TRUCE SUPERVISORY ORGANISATION - FOR DEALING WITH DISPUTES ALONG THE ARAB-ISRAELI BORDERS. WE THEREFORE DEPLORE THE RESORT TO FORCE BY ANY PARTY."
    JORDAN TODAY ACCUSED ISRAEL OF "PROVOCATIVE OPERATIONS" AGAINST HER, AND CLAIMED THAT FOUR PEOPLE WERE KILLED DURING THE ATTACK ACROSS THE BORDER LAST NIGHT. A JORDANIAN MILITARY SPOKESMAN SAID THAT TWO OF THE DEAD WERE CHILDREN. THE ISRAELIS BLEW UP TWO FARMS DURING THEIR "DEFEATED RETREAT."
