Two infiltrators from the Gaza Strip were killed today by an Israel army patrol, the Israel Army spokesman announced today. The patrol intercepted a group of three Arabs who refused to halt and opened fire instead. The third Arab fled across the border. Two members of the patrol were wounded and treated in a nearby hospital.
(The United Arab Republic was blamed by United Nations officials today for the killing last Saturday of a Canadian United Nations Emergency Force soldier, Ronald Allen of Halifax, Nova Scotia. He died from wounds he suffered when his jeep was fired on during a routine patrol of the Sinai border.)
