  • Description

    TWO EXPLOSIONS YESTERDAY (THURSDAY) SOUTH-WEST OF NAZARETH IN ISRAEL NEAR ITS BORDER WITH JORDAN CAUSED LITTLE DAMAGE AND NO CASUALTIES. A THIRD EXPLOSIVE CHARGE WAS FOUND IN THE SAME AREA BEFORE IT COULD DETONATE.

    ONE EXPLOSIVE CHARGE WENT OFF UNDER A BRIDGE ON THE AFFULA-MEGIDDO ROAD BUT IT SIMPLY SCARRED THE SURFACE. ANOTHER CHARGE EXPLODED UNDER A NEARBY WATER CONDUIT WITH SIMILAR RESULT.

    THE THIRD WAS DISCOVERED AND REMOVED BEFORE IT EXPLODED. ISRAELI AUTHORITIES SAID A MAN'S FOOTPRINT LED FROM THE SCENE TOWARDS THE JORDAN BORDER A LITTLE DISTANCE AWAY.

    ISRAEL SAID IT HAD LODGED COMPLAINTS WITH THE ISRAEL-JORDAN MIXED ARMISTICE COMMISSION. UNITED NATIONS OBSERVERS ON BORDER PATROL EXAMINED THE SCENE OF THE EXPLOSIONS.

    NOT FAR AWAY, THE VILLAGE OF BAKA EL GARBIYA IS BEING CLOSED DOWN. THE PROBLEM IS THAT IT LIES IN BOTH ISRAEL AND JORDAN. NOW, ITS PEOPLE ARE BEING MOVED FURTHER BACK INTO THEIR OWN TERRITORIES.

    POLICE AND MILITARY DEEPS PATROL BOTH SIDES TO GUARD AGAINST ANY SUDDEN VIOLENCE.
