One of Quietest Weeks Since Six-day War Along All Borders

Download PDF for this date

Only ten incidents, mostly minor ones, were reported along all borders during the seven days that ended last Sunday, a military spokesman reported today. He said it was one of the quietest weeks since the Six-Day War. He said four incidents occurred along the Lebanese frontier where Israeli forces continue to police the border area against terrorist activities. Two incidents along the Syrian border involved bazooka attacks on Israeli settlements which caused no damage. There were three incidents in the Gaza Strip and only one on the Jordanian demarcation line where an infiltrator, apparently a smuggler, was killed when he stepped on a mine after crossing the Jordan River into Israel.
