TEL AVIV (Apr. 4)
Egypt has received permission to use water wells located inside Israel territory, according to an agreement reached at a meeting of the mixed Israel-Egyptian armistico commission. The wells are located south of Nirim, in the Negev.
The commission also agreed to establish joint Israel-Egyptian border patrols to prevent continued marauding by Arab bands. Meanwhile, a khaki-clad young marauder was killed yesterday in a pitched battle between a group of six bandits and units attached to the Ramat Gan police station. The clash took place in an abandoned orange prove near the Lydda airport. Two hand grenades, a pistol and housebreaking tools were found on the body of the slain Arab. A Sten gun of British make, apparently abandoned by one of the fleeing Arabs, was also found in the area.
