  • Description

    ISRAELI TROOPS HAVE BEGUN BUILDING DEFENCE POSTS IN ISRAELI OCCUPIED JORDAN AIMED AT EVENTUALLY PROVIDING URBAN SETTLEMENT FOR JEWISH PEOPLE.

    THE FIRST OUTPOST IS BEING CONSTRUCTED IN THE JORDAN BASIN, FOUR MILES (7 KMS) NORTH OF THE DAMYA BRIDGE. IT'S NAMED 'ARGAMAN' AFTER TWO HIGH-RANKING ISRAELI OFFICERS RECENTLY KILLED IN SKIRMISHES AGAINST FATAH INFILTRATORS IN THE AREA.

    THE ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER, MR. ESHKOL, SUGGESTED ON WEDNESDAY (DECEMBER 11) THAT THE GOVERNMENT EXAMINE THE POSSIBILITIES OF JEWISH SETTLEMENT IN THE ISRAELI ADMINISTERED AREAS OF JORDAN.

    AT THE MOMENT, THE TROOPS PIONEERING THESE AREAS FOR SETTLEMENT ARE KNOWN AS THE NAHAL. BUT UNDER THE GOVERNMENT PLAN, THESE PATROLLING TROOPS WILL BE REPLACED IN THE OUTPOSTS BY PERMANENT SETTLERS.

    THE NEW SETTLERS WILL LIVE ON THE LAND AND TRY TO CLEAR THE AREA OF FATAH INFILTRATION.

    MOST ISRAELI GOVERNMENT MINISTERS HAVE EXPRESSED SUPPORT FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF AGRICULTURAL-SECURITY POINTS IN THESE AREAS BEFORE A PEACE SETTLEMENT IS REACHED WITH THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC AND JORDAN.
