  • Description

    ROYAL AIR FORCE JET FIGHTERS BASED AT KHORMAKSAR IN ADEN ARE CARRYING OUT ROUND-THE-CLOCK PATROLS ALONG THE PROTECTORATE'S FRONTIER BORDERING ON YEMEN WITH ORDERS TO SHOOT DOWN YEMENI AIRCRAFT FLYING OVER PROTECTORATE TERRITORY.

    THE NEW ALERT FOLLOWS WHAT THE ADEN GOVERNMENT CLAIMED AS A YEMENI AIR ATTACK BY BOMBING AND STRAFING ON A TOWN IN BEIHAN, IN THE WESTERN REGION OF ADEN THIS WEEK. THE GOVERNMENT SAID THAT A CHILD HAD BEEN KILLED AND TWO HOUSES DESTROYED BY THREE SOVIET-BUILT AIRCRAFT OF THE YEMENI AIR FORCE.

    IT DESCRIBED THE ATTACKS AS PREMEDITATED ALLEGING YEMENI PLANES HAD CARRIED OUT A RECONNAISANCE FLIGHT OVER BEIHAN THE DAY BEFORE THE ATTACK. BUT THE YEMENI REVOLUTIONARY COMMAND HAS NOW DENIED THE GOVERNMENT REPORT AND SAID THAT IT BELIEVED BRITAIN WAS TRYING TO JUSTIFY PLANNED AGGRESSION AGAINST THE NEW REPUBLIC.

    FLYING IN PAIRS, HUNTERS OF TWO SQUADRONS ARE FLYING 15 PATROLS A DAY AND THE TACTICAL OPERATIONS WING UNDER THE MIDDLE EAST COMMAND IS ON A CONTINUOUS STATE OF ALERT.
