The U.S. and Israel cleared up differences between them tonight over Israel’s use of American-supplied warplanes in its raid on the Iraqi nuclear installation. A joint statement said the two sides had thoroughly examined the problem to their mutual satisfaction. As a result, Israel Television reported, the four suspended F-16 warplanes would now be released and would arrive in Israel by the weekend. The agreement came at a nighttime meeting, their second today, between Premier Menachem Begin and State Department Counsellor Robert McFarlane.
