  • Description

    Two Fatah commandos killed during clashes with Israeli forces since the Middle-East ceasefire were given a public funeral in Amman on Wednesday (12 August).

    The commandos died during a 12-hour battle on the occupied West Bank of the Jordan River on Sunday in which four guerrillas were reported killed. The fighting was the most serious since the cease-fire came into effect on Friday under the United States peace initiative. Arab commandos have killed at least five Israeli civilians since the ceasefire came into operation and guerrilla organisations claim to have killed or wounded more than 20 Israeli soldiers.

    The two commandos buried in Amman were from Aden and armed Fatah members accompanied the funeral procession. Many commando groups oppose the ceasefire along the Suez and Jordan fronts because they fear the Middle-East negotiations will not satisfy their demands for the liberation of Palestine.

    The ceasefire between the Israelis and Jordanian and Egyptian Government forces continues. The only reported infringement came on Wednesday when an Israeli patrol came under small arms fire on the Suez front.
