Download PDF for this date

For the second day in a row, Syrian gunners fired again today at an Israeli patrol in the northernmost border sector near the Dan River in an apparent effort to prevent Israeli use of the disputed border road by attacking every patrol moving on it., The fire was returned today, and the patrol completed its assignment without reported casualties. Israel complained to the United Nations Mixed Armistice Commission.
