  • Description

    THE CEASEFIRE BETWEEN ISRAEL AND SYRIA HAS BROUGHT TO A CLOSE THE WEEKLONG WAR IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

    ONE OF THE FIERCEST CAMPAIGNS OF THE CONFLICT WAS FOUGHT BETWEEN ISRAELI AND EGYPTIAN FORCES IN THE SINAI DESERT. THE FINAL STAGES OF THE BATTLE WERE FOUGHT ON FRIDAY WHEN ISRAELI FORCES ATTACKED RETREATING COLUMNS OF EGYPTIAN ARMOUR.

    THE ISRAELI ACTION IN THE DESERT ON FRIDAY WAS MAINLY AGAINST SMALL GROUPS OF EGYPTIANS, AND WITH HARASSING THE RETREAT OF EGYPTIAN ARMOUR.

    PROTECTED BY ARTILLERY, THE ISRAELI TROOPS ADVANCED THROUGH THE EGYPTIAN COLUMNS. HUNDREDS OF VEHICLES AND TANKS WERE DISABLED, AND MANY PRISONERS WERE TAKEN.

    REPORTS FROM THE AREA ON FRIDAY THAT MANY EGYPTIANS HAD ABANDONED EQUIPMENT AND ARMS AND WERE WITHDRAWING IN BROKEN RANKS.

    AT THE END OF THE CONFLICT ISRAEL NOW COMMANDS AN AREA FOUR TIMES AS GREAT AS WHEN FIGHTING BROKE OUT. ISRAELI OFFICIALS HAVE REPORTED THAT 679 ISRAELI TROOPS WERE KILLED AND MORE THAN 2,500 INJURED IN THE WAR.
