  • Description

    FIGHTING BROKE OUT TODAY (MONDAY) ON SEVERAL FRONTS IN THE MIDDLE EAST, ACCORDING TO REPORTS REACHING LONDON. YESTERDAY, KING HUSSEIN OF JORDAN TOLD A PRESS CONFERENCE IN AMMAN THAT IRAQ HAD JOINED THE DEFENCE PACT BETWEEN JORDAN AND THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC SIGNED IN CAIRO LAST WEEK.

    AT HIS PRESS CONFERENCE, KING HUSSEIN STRESSED THAT ALL DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE ARAB STATES HAD BEEN SUNK UNTIL THE "PALESTINE ISSUE" HAD BEEN RESOLVED. HE WARNED THAT ANY NATION WHICH SIDED WITH ISRAEL WOULD LOSE THE ARAB'S FRIENDSHIP FOREVER.

    THE KING APPEALED TO THE 70 CORRESPONDENTS PRESENT TO DISPROVE WHAT HE CALLED THE ZIONIST-CREATED IMAGE OF ARABS AS "BLOODSTIRSTY AND WANTING TO DESTROY". HE CHARGED THAT ISRAEL HAD MANUFACTURED MANY INCIDENTS OF ALLEGED SABOTAGE IN ITS TERRITORY TO PREPARE THE WORLD FOR ANOTHER SAVAGE REPRISAL.
