Britain Reported Sending Jet Fighters to Jordan and Syria

Download PDF for this date

French government circles reaffirmed today that France had shipped “Ouragon” fighters, jets with a top speed of only 5.0 miles an hour, to Israel, but noted that Israel did not seem to be completely satisfied with this deal because it had requested “Mystere” fighters, capable of meeting the speeds of the Soviet MIG 15 fighters.

Meanwhile, reports from French sources assert that in addition to sending Vampire jet fighters to Jordan, the British Government has sent “Meteor” jets to Syria.
