Two Israelis Killed, Two Wounded by Arab Infiltrees; Israel Protests to U.N. Body

The Israel Government today submitted a strongly worded protest to the United Nations Mixed Armistice Commission following the killing of two Israeli surveyors by Arab infiltrees near Sodom. Two other Israeli surveyors were wounded by the Arabs.

The Israel protest says that the Jordan authorities are “fully responsible” for the Attack. The Jordan Government, the protest points out, has not taken strong enough action to secure its borders and prevent armed bands from crossing and attacking Israeli points. British-made cartridges were found at the spot where the attack took place.
