Egypt Threatens to Use Rockets and Missiles Against Israel

Download PDF for this date

Radio Cairo today warned, in a Hebrew language broadcast, that the United Arab Republic possesses enough rockets, missiles and other modern weapons, “capable of annihilating Israel in one attack.”

The broadcast, monitored here, lumps together a number of recent Middle East developments as “proof” of a “concerted imperialist-planned operation” against the U. A. R. The events include the recent Egyptian-Israeli jet-plane battle, Jordan’s complaint against the U. A. R. closing the Jordanian-Syrian border, and an Iraqi allegation that the U. A. R. was sending fedayeen into Iraq.
