Israel Complains to U. N. Armistice Commission Against Syrian Attack

Israel complained today to the Mixed Armistice Commission against an attack by Syrian gunners on a tractor working on land near the border. The driver was unhurt. Syrian shooting set the field ablaze, and firemen battled the flames while Syrians continued to fire at the Israelis.

An infiltrator was killed last night near Kibbutz Nir Yitzhak in the Gaza Strip area, after disobeying an order to halt. Another infiltrator eluded an army patrol and escaped across the Egyptian border.
