The heads of state of 13 Arab countries are scheduled to meet in Casablanca tomorrow to review military plans against Israel and other inter-Arab problems.

Lt. Gen. Ali Amer, Egyptian commander of the Arab unified command, will report to the conference on plans for Arab action if Israel moves its army against Arab projects to divert the Jordan River waters. Ahmed Shukairy, chairman of the “Palestine Liberation Organization,” will ask for more funds for training and equipping the army.
