Download PDF for this date

Israel complained to the United Nations Truce Supervision Organization yesterday that two Syrian Sukhoi-7 bombers overflew Israeli positions on the Golan Heights. The bodies of two Syrian soldiers killed in a clash on the Heights last week were returned to Syria today under Red Cross supervision. Two other Syrian soldiers were wounded and captured in the encounter.
