  • Description

    FIGHTING BETWEEN ISRAELI AND JORDANIAN FORCES FLARED AGAIN TODAY (SUNDAY) IN THE LATRUN AREA NORTH OF JERUSALEM. ACCORDING TO AN ISRAELI ARMY COMMUNIQUE FIGHTING BEGAN AT MID-DAY WHEN JORDANIAN TROOPS ARE ALLEGED TO HAVE OPENED FIRE WITH MORTARS AND AUTOMATIC WEAPONS ON ISRAELI TRACTORS. THE RESULTING EXCHANGE OF FIRE LASTED ABOUT AN HOUR AND A HALF.

    THE LATRUN FIGHTING FOLLOWED AN ISRAELI COMPLAINT TO THE UNITED NATIONS MIXED ARMISTICE COMMISSION OVER AN INCIDENT AT ROSH HA AYIN - A SETTLEMENT NEAR THE ISRAELI-JORDAN BORDER. A PUMPING STATING AT THE SETTLEMENT, ABOUT TWO-AND-A-HALF MILES (4 KMS) FROM THE BORDER, WAS BLOWN UP BY A DYNAMITE CHARGE.

    OBSERVERS FROM THE UNITED NATIONS COMMISSION INSPECTED THE SCENE AND SPOKE WITH SETTLER AND ISRAELI TROOPS AND POLICE. AT THE SAME TIME, ISRAELI BORDER POLICE BROUGHT IN TRACKER DOGS AND CLAIMED THEY HAD TRACED TRACKS LEFT BY THE MARAUDERS LEADING TO THE BORDER.

    (RECENTLY, ISRAEL HAS MADE SEVERAL COMPLAINTS TO THE COMMISSION AND LAUNCHED PUNITIVE RAIDS INTO JORDAN AND LEBANON OVER ATTACKS ALLEGEDLY MADE BY THE 'EL FATAH' TERRORIST ORGANISATIONS, WHICH THE ISRAELIS CLAIM ARE MAINLY BASED IN JORDAN.)
