Jordan and Lebanon Reach Agreement on Anti-israel Armed Cooperation

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

The Jordan radio announced today that Jordan and Lebanon have reached an agreement on cooperation between their armies in the event of war with Israel. Similar agreements were concluded recently by Jordan with Egypt and Syria.

An Israeli private who wandered into Jordan by accident six weeks ago was returned to Israel by Jordanian authorities here yesterday. Pvt. Yoram Cohen, who inadvertently made the border crossing from Pardess Hanna, was handed over to Israeli authorities at United Nations headquarters at the Mandelbaum Gate here.

An Egyptian infiltrator was captured well inside Israel today. A military patrol picked him up near the settlement of Nirim, opposite the Gaza border. Two Israeli workers were wounded when Syrians fired from positions across their border on a group of Israelis working in a settlement in northern Israel.
