Armistice Commission Censures Israel for Shells Landing in Jordan

Israel was censured today by the Israel-Jordan Mixed Armistice Commission because its troops training near the Jordanian border had inadvertently fired across the line into a Jordanian village.

The MAC charged that two artillery shells had landed in the village of Beitsra on April 2. The UN chairman of the unit called for strict measures, to prevent recurrences of such incidents.
