Download PDF for this date

Israelis watched and listened closely this weekend as tensions ran high between El Fatah commandos and the Jordanian Army in Amman in the wake of reported arrests–and the possible release–of guerrillas responsible for last week’s rocket attack on Eilat. Eilat onlookers saw Jordanian tanks and troops move into Aqaba yesterday. The towns are some four miles apart.
