  • Description

    Jordan has condemned Israel for bringing large numbers of armaments and troops into the New City of Jerusalem, in preparation for the Independence parade on April 24th.,-------- the tenth anniversary of Israeli independence.

    At a meeting of the Israel-Jordan mixed armistice commission on April 23rd, a vote on the matter went against the Israelis. The reason for this was that the Israeli members walked out of the meeting, leaving the United Nations representative and Jordanian members. The UN. officer abstained -- his explanation was that Israel had refused to allow an investigation of the Jordanian complaint and would not accept date put forward by Jordan. He was critical of the fact that Israel had withheld information until the arrival of the prescribed equipment in Jerusalem.

    He did not doubt that the Israel statement that the troops and artillery were without ammunition and had been brought into the city solely for the purpose of a military parade.

    The Jordanian Government has taken a serious view of the situation and themselves brought large numbers of men and machines in their part of the city, against any risks.

    For the dress rehearsal of the parade the Israeli Army had 80 French-built, lightweight tanks, 24 guns of 155mm and 12 of 105mm calibre, is well as 900 troops--- women and men----brought to Jerusalem.
