Jordanian Troops Fire on Israelis at Two Points; No Casualties

The uneasy silence which prevailed during Christmas along the Israel-Jordan border erupted into violence today when Jordanian troops fired on Israeli patrols at two points on the Sharon plain.

Israel returned the fire. No casualties were reported on the Israeli side. Following today’s incidents two complaints were submitted by Israel to the United Nations Truce Supervision Organization.
