Syrians Break Cease-fire; Launch Attack on Israeli Troops; Are Repulsed

Syrian armored forces launched an attack against Israeli troops today at Kuneitra, a Syrian position occupied last week by Israel prior to the cease-fire arrangement voted by the U.N. Security Council. Israel, however, drove off the attacking Syrians. The Syrian effort was the first violation of the U.N. cease-fire resolution.

Israeli officials disclosed today that they had found large quantities of Chinese-made weapons buried in orange groves in the Gaza Strip. The arms included bazookas, machine guns and antitank rifles.
