The United States will supply additional weapons to Israel if a survey of Soviet arms shipments to the Middle East to begin this month indicates that the balance of military power is tilting toward the Arab world, the Evening Standard’s Washington correspondent, Jeremy Campbell, reported today. Mr. Campbell said the study was ordered In wake of reports that Russian pilots are flying MIG 21 fighters and medium-range jet bombers over Egypt and Syria.
“While the United States is not convinced that Arab arms have enough military muscle to begin another Mideast war tomorrow, officials admit that the approaching review of the arms situation may change their minds,” Mr. Campbell reported.
