Six persons were slightly injured last night when Jordanian forces shelled Kibbutz Gesher near the confluence of the Yarmuk and Jordan rivers. Jordanians fired six mortar shells into Kibbutz Ahdot Jaacov in the Beisan Valley later last night but no casualties were reported, a military spokesman said and damage was slight. Three of the shells struck between the communal dining hall and the children’s quarter.
