  • Description

    Palestine guerrillas are fleeing Jordan and crossing into Israel after being dislodged from their strongholds by the Jordanian Army. By Monday (July 19) 72 guerrillas had crossed the Jordan River in 48 hours and surrendered to the Israeli authorities, who are treating them as civilian political refugees rather than as prisoners of war. Both Syria and Iraq have closed their borders to the guerrillas, most of whom belong to the El Fatah or Fedayen movements. Once across the river Jordan, the guerrillas are driven to interrogation centres and given food and water, and in Tel Aviv yesterday the Israeli authorities allowed pressmen to speak to some of the refugee Arab fighters. This film shows that press conference, with an English interpretation on the sound track.
