  • Description

    AN ISRAELI ARMY SPOKESMAN HAS ANNOUNCED THE DEATH OF TWO ISRAELI FARMERS, KILLED YESTERDAY (MONDAY) WHEN THEIR JEEP STRUCK AT LANDMINE NEAR ALMAGOR, A VILLAGE ON THE ISRAELI FRONTIER WITH SYRIA. OBSERVERS OF THE UNITED NATIONS ISRAELI-SYRIAN MIXED ARMISTICE COMMISSION HAVE BEEN INVESTIGATING THE INCIDENT.

    OBSERVERS IN TEL AVIV REGARD THE INCIDENT AS A GRAVE DEVELOPMENT AND CLAIM IT FOLLOWED REPORTS FROM DAMASCUS WHICH ALLEGED THAT ISRAELI TROOPS WERE CONCENTRATING ALONG THE SYRIAN BORDER. SYRIAN AUTHORITIES HAVE ORDERED THE EVACUATION OF VILLAGES CLOSE TO THE SOUTH-WESTERN BORDER WITH ISRAEL AS A RESULT OF THE ALLEGED CONCENTRATION.

    THE TWO FARMERS WERE SAID TO BE ESCORTING THREE TRACTORS, ENGAGED IN RECLAMATION WORK, WHEN THE MINE EXPLODED.
