  • Description

    SOUTH VIETNAM GOVERNMENT TROOPS HAVE BEEN CONTINUING THEIR ATTACKS ON THE VIET CONG STRONGHOLD OF DO XA IN THE QUANG NGAI PROVINCE. THE CENTRE OF THE FIGHTING IS ABOUT THREE HUNDRED AND FIFTY MILES NORTH-EAST OF SAIGON.

    THE GOVERNMENT TROOPS BELIEVE THAT THEIR REPEATED ATTACKS UPON THE DO XA STRONGHOLD HAVE SUCCESSFULLY DISRUPTED THE VIET CONG'S COMMUNICATIONS NETWORK. THEY SAY THAT NO RADIO MESSAGES HAVE PASSED BETWEEN THE STRONGHOLD AND OUTLYING UNITS SINCE GOVERNMENT TROOPS BEGAN THEIR OFFENSIVE.

    THE OPERATION WHICH IS STILL CONTINUING COVERS A WIDE AREA OF THE SOUTH VIETNAMESE JUNGLE. IT IS A MOUNTAINOUS AREA AND IN THE VALLEYS IT IS BELIEVED THE VIET CONG ARE GROWING CROPS TO SUPPLY FOOD TO THE OUTLYING UNITS. THESE CROPS ARE ONE OF THE OBJECTIVES OF THE GOVERNMENT ATTACK. IN THE MANG XIM VALLEY, WHERE THE VIET CONG HAVE BEEN GROWING PADDY AND MAIZE CROPS, THE GOVERNMENT FORCES HAVE ALREADY SEIZED CONTROL.
