  • Description

    In Jordan the Palestine Liberation Organisation organised a march today (Saturday, February the 6th) the Moslem Id Al-Adha feast day, in memory of commandos killed in the September fighting against Jordan Government forces. The parade included groups of young boys and girls wearing garlands.

    Trouble has flared several times since September between the commandos and Jordanian forces. The present cease-fire between the two is reported to be a shaky one with relations at their lowest ebb.

    Speaking on the eve of the feast, King Hussein, in a radio and television broadcast, called for an end to the hostility. And in an indirect criticism of Arab states which had expressed concern over the commando movement, the King said he wished that those who had been so concerned had given the commandos a fraction of the generous support given by Jordan.
