  • Description

    On New Year's day, the sixth anniversary of the Palestinian Revolution, junior commandos in training demonstrated their skills at Hashimi mountain, one of Amman's seven hills.

    The boys and girls of the "commando cubs" demonstrated the usual arts of war, and also traditional Palestinian dancing.

    The Palestinian Revolution began on the first of January 1965, and the cubs' display was only one of the Palestinian ceremonies marking the anniversary.

    At Hashimi mountain, one of the landmarks controlled by the Palestinians during the September fighting, the young people paraded in disciplined fashion, bearing the Palestinian flag.

    The young men showed their toughness over the assault course, and going through burning hoops.

    That same evening in the western part of Amman, shots were reported to have been heard.

    Arab military observers charged with implementing a cease-fire between the Jordanian army and Palestinian guerrillas rushed to the scene of the gunfire, but there was no indication that this was a new clash between the army and the fedayeen.
