    EXCLUSIVE FILM OF ISRAELI AIR STRIKES OVER AMMAN REACHED LONDON TODAY (MONDAY) AFTER THE RE-OPENING OF AMMAN AIRPORT.

    THE ATTACK AGAINST AMMAN AIRPORT WAS LAUNCHED ON JUNE 5, ONLY A SHORT TIME AFTER HOSTILITIES BETWEEN ISRAEL AND HER ARAB NEIGHBOURS COMMENCED.

    THE ISRAELI AIRCRAFT ARE REPORTED TO HAVE FLOWN TO JORDAN FROM BASES IN TEL AVIV. THE AIRCRAFT PASSED OVER AMMAN SEVERAL TIMES, STRAFING AIRCRAFT AND BUILDINGS AT AMMAN AIRPORT.

    THE RAID WAS ONE OF NINETEEN AIR ATTACKS MADE IN JORDAN, SYRIA, THE SINAI DESERT AND EGYPT EARLY LAST MONDAY MORNING, WHEN, ACCORDING TO SOME MILITARY STRATEGISTS, ISRAEL GAINED HER MILITARY ADVANTAGE BY DESTROYING HER OPPONENTS' AIRCRAFT WHILE THEY WERE STILL ON THE GROUND.

    MEANWHILE, JORDAN, WHICH HAS ALLEGED ISRAELI AIRCRAFT USE NAPALM BOMBS, HAS OPENED THE GENERAL ARMY HOSPITAL IN AMMAN TO REPORTERS AND CAMERAMEN.

    A DOCTOR AT ONE HOSPITAL NEAR AMMAN SAID OF THE 600 MILITARY CASUALTIES HE HAD EXAMINED THERE WAS NOT ONE WOUNDED BY A BULLET. TWO HUNDRED OF THE CASUALTIES, ACCORDING TO THE DOCTOR, WERE SUFFERING NAPALM BURNS. THE INTERNATIONAL RED CROSS IS INVESTIGATING THE ALLEGATIONS.
