Arabs Shell Hartuv. Birmain; Syrians Refuse to Quit Height in Israeli Territory

Egyptian forces yesterday shelled Hartuv, in the Latrun area, while Arab Legion artillery units opened fire against Birmain, an official communique reported today.

Meanwhile, Syrian forces occupying a height in the Mishmar Hayarden sector have not evacuated their position despite an order to do so by United Nations officials. The Syrian-held height is located in Israeli territory and was seized by the Syrians during the present truce.
