Jordanians opened fire on Israeli units near the northern Beisan Valley settlement of Yardena at about noon today and fired on three other occasions on Israeli troops in the Jordan Valley this afternoon, a military spokesman announced tonight. An Israeli soldier was wounded in one of the exchanges. The first incident took place near the Damiyah Bridge. The other two occurred near the Abdallah Bridge. Israeli return fire silenced the Jordanians in each case.
