Israel-transjordan Armistice Body Holds Five-hour Meeting; Territory Exchange Discussed

The Israel-Transjordan mixed armistice commission deliberated today for five hours in an effort to remove “eight complaints from the agenda.” Both sides declined to divulge the nature of the complaints, but it is believed they include a territorial exchange involving the Israel-held village of Wadi Fukin, located near Bethlehem.
