  • Description

    Egyptian troops in Qantara on the East Bank of the Suez Canal awaited developments on Monday (29 October), as United Nations peacekeeping forces moved in to implement the latest ceasefire. Further south, the Third Army, which was cut off by Israeli forces, was officers ??? allowed through Israeli lines.

    The Egyptian troops marked time by showing Western newsmen wrecked Israeli Phantom jets and tanks. At the same time, fresh violations of the ceasefire were alleged by Israel. A military spokesman in tel Aviv said three ground-to-air missiles had been fired at Israeli reconnaissance planes east of the Canal, but none had been hit. Israeli forces reported shooting down three Egyptian helicopters which had flown over Israeli positions on the Canal.

    As the Egyptian soldiers held onto formes Israeli positions near the Canal, there was a new turn in negotiations between the Arabs and the Israelis. Egypt was reported to have passed a list of prisoners-of-war to the Israeli Government through the United Nations Truce Supervision Organisation. The list is believed to have removed one of the major obstacles to peace talks between the two parties.
