  • Description

    INDONESIA HAS RECENTLY LAUNCHED THREE COMMANDO RAIDS AGAINST SOUTH MALAYA, TWO BY AIR AND ONE BY SEA. GUARDING AGAINST FURTHER INCURSIONS, BRITISH TROOPS ARE ASSISTING MALAYSIAN FORCES IN THE DIFFICULTY TASK OF PATROLLING THE COASTLINE AND JUNGLE COUNTRY.

    HELICOPTERS HAVE PLAYED AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN THE OPERATIONS AGAINST INFILTRATORS, MOVING MAN POWER FROM ONE PLACE TO ANOTHER AS NEW INFILTRATIONS WERE REPORTED.

    TODAY (WEDNESDAY) CAME NEWS THAT BRITISH MARINE COMMANDOS ARE ASSISTING MALAYSIAN FORCES IN AN OPERATION ON THE ISLANDS OFF SOUTH MALAYA. SOME INDONESIANS ARE BELIEVED TO HAVE BEEN LANDED ON THE ISLANDS AND ARE NOW AWAITING AN OPPORTUNITY TO SLIP ACROSS TO THE MAINLAND.

    THE BRITISH TROOPS - 300 OF THEM - ARE FROM THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER "VICTORIOUS". THEY WERE LANDED BY BOAT AND HELICOPTER AND PLAN TO SEARCH EACH OF THE ISLANDS IN TURN TO FORCE ANY INDONESIANS INTO THE OPEN.

    IN ORDER TO PREVENT SEA LANDINGS, THE MALAYSIAN GOVERNMENT ANNOUNCED TODAY THAT IT HAD CLOSED ITS WATERS TO INDONESIAN SMALL BARTER TRADERS, CHARGING THAT INDONESIA WAS USING THEM TO SMUGGLE AGENTS AND ARMS INTO THE COUNTRY. FROM NEXT YEAR THE GOVERNMENT WILL ALSO BAN ALL SHIPS AND PLANES CARRYING CARGO TO INDONESIA FROM CALLING AT MALAYSIAN HARBOURS AND AIRPORTS. THE BAN SNAPS ONE OF THE FEW REMAINING TRADE LINKS BETWEEN INDONESIA AND THE MALAYSIAN PORTS WHICH UNTIL LAST YEAR HANDLED THE BULK OF ITS TRADE.
