Kuwait Press Attacks Terrorists

Newspapers in Kuwait, the oil-rich Persian Gulf state, broke a long silence today on the situation in Jordan to defend the Hussein regime and criticize the terrorist movement and the revolutionary Arab states such as Iraq, Syria and Egypt, which allegedly support it. The newspapers urged Saudi Arabia and Egypt to resume the efforts which they abandoned last month to mediate between Jordan and the Palestinian guerrillas. Meanwhile, Amman radio intensified attacks on the terrorists describing them as “criminal gangs.”
