  • Description

    KING HUSSEIN OF JORDAN YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) WARNED OF POSSIBLE REPRISALS AGAINST ISRAEL IF THERE WERE ANY FURTHER ATTACKS ON HIS COUNTRY. THE KING WAS SPEAKING AT A PRESS CONFERENCE AT HIS PALACE IN AMMAN.

    THE KING'S STATEMENT COMES AT A TIME WHEN FEELING ARE RUNNING HIGH IN JORDAN FOR ACTION AGAINST ISRAEL. PEOPLE LIVING IN BORDER TOWNS HAVE ASKED TO BE ARMED IN CASE OF MORE ATTACKS SIMILAR TO THOSE ISRAELI TROOPS AND PLANES CARRIED OUT ON JORDANIAN VILLAGES ON NOVEMBER 13.

    KING HUSSEIN REFUSED TO ARM THE VILLAGERS BUT SAID AT THE PRESS CONFERENCE: "IF ISRAEL WANTS WAR WE WILL FIGHT WITH ALL OUR STRENGTH." HE SAID JORDAN WOULDN'T LIMIT ITSELF TO A DEFENSIVE ROLE. IT THERE WERE FURTHER ATTACKS JORDAN MIGHT CROSS THE ARMISTICE LINE.

    KING HUSSEIN SAID JORDAN MIGHT NOT ATTEND A MEETING OF THE ARAB JOINT DEFENCE COUNCIL IN CAIRO NEXT WEDNESDAY, CALLED TO DISCUSS THE IMPLICATIONS OF THE ISRAELI ATTACK. HE SAID HE WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE MEETING POSTPONED AND HELD SOMEWHERE OTHER THAN CAIRO. THE KING HAS CRITICISED THE ARAB UNITED COMMAND OF NOT PROVIDING SUPPORT AGAINST THE ISRAELI ATTACK WHICH WAS CARRIED OUT, ACCORDING TO ISRAEL, IN REPRISAL AGAINST JORDANIAN VILLAGES BEING USED AS BASES FOR TERRORIST GROUPS ENTERING ISRAEL.
