Download PDF for this date

An army spokesman reported today an apparent new E1 Fatah terrorist attack on a pumping station near the Jordanian border and shooting from Jordan at a group of Israeli civilians in which one was seriously wounded.

He said two explosions after midnight damaged two walls near the Newaga pumping station of Rosh Haayin near Petach Tikvah, about three miles from the border but that no one was hurt in the blasts. Tracks of three persons were found leading to the Jordanian border.

In the other incident, the civilians were the targets of rifle fire about a mile north of Ein Gedi near the Jordanian border. Four civilians were slightly injured in the attack. Israel filed complaints on both incidents with the United Nations Israel-Jordan Mixed Armistice Commission.
