Download PDF for this date

The remains of a 107 mm. Katyusha rocket found near Kibbutz Beth Yosef in the Beit Shean valley south of Lake Tiberias today indicated the source of two explosions heard in the region last night. There were no casualties or damage.

Israeli soldiers searched today for more rocket debris and Jordanian soliders were seen engaged in a similar search on their side of the Jordan River. Israel military sources said terrorists apparently infiltrated Arab Legion lines and crossed the river last night into Israel, fired two rockets and fled.

The sources said the Jordanians appear to be continuing their efforts to prevent terrorist attacks on Israel from Jordanian soil.
