Golda Meir and Dulles to Confer Today on Arab Commando Raids

Download PDF for this date

The resumption of Egyptian-commanded fedayeen operations against Israel will be among topics expected on the agenda tomorrow when Israel Foreign Minister Golda Meir meets here with Secretary of State John Foster Dulles.

(From Tel Aviv it was reported today that fedayeen commandos struck at the settlements of Ein Vered and Ein Sarid, in the Sharon Plain near the Jordan border, last night, dynamiting a house at Ein Vered. Israeli guards intercepted the commandos and exchanged fire with them repulsing the attackers after throwing some hand grenades at them. While retiring, the fedayeen evidently managed to place a time bomb under a house at Ein Vered; the bomb exploded this morning causing no casualties.)

Mrs. Meir may also inquire into the question of possible resumption of the now dormant U. S. economic aid program in Israel. State Department sources indicated a likelihood that Mr. Dulles would stress the importance the United States attaches to the withdrawal of Israeli forces from Egyptian territory.
