• 2 Egyptian Boats Destroyed in Attack on Patrol

(Continued from Page 1)

critical situation continued and na-
tional unity was so urgent, the gov-
ernment of national union formed
by the broadening of the coalition
last May, would be continued.
Two Egyptian torpedo boats at-
tacked an Israel patrol cruising
Tuesday night off the Sinai coast
and both were destroyed, the
Israeli army spokesman reported
Wednesday. Both of the attacking
torpedo boats apparently ex-
ploded, and Israeli boats cruising
the area reported they could find
no survivors. Eight Israeli sai-

lors were injured in the clash,
most of them slightly.

The patrol consisted of the de-
stroyer Eliat, and two Israeli tor-
pedo boats. It was cruising along
the Sinai shore some 25 miles east
of Port Said when the Egyptian
vessels approached and opened
fire. One of the Egyptian vessels
was claimed by the Israeli torpedo
boats and the other by the de-
stroyer.
The spokesman said that the at-
tackers saw only the Israeli tor-
pedo boats and were not aware that
the destroyer was part of the
patrol. Navy Commander Shlomo
Erel was in constant contact with
the unit and reported Wednesday
morning to headquarters on the
battle. One of the Egyptian boats
was so close to Eilat when it blew
up that it caused some damage to
the port and injuries to some of
the Israeli sailors.

Egyptian Bomber
Shot Down in Foray

Israeli officials reported that one
Egyptian Soviet-made Sokhoy-7 jet
bomber was shot down Tuesday
and another driven off by Israeli
anti-aircraft gunners near Kantara
in occupied Sinai Peninsula terri-
tory. Last week, an Egyptian
Soviet-made MIG was shot down in
a similar engagement.
The incident took place when the
two jet bombers came in low over
Israeli positions and were engaged
by the anti-aircraft units. The pilot
of the downed jet bomber was seen
to bail out.

The Israel government official-
ly announced Tuesday that it had
agreed to the posting of United
Nations observers along the
cease-fire line at the Suez Canal.
The Israeli agreement specified
that the observers must be posted
on both sides of the cease-fire
line on the basis of strict reci-

procity.
Lt. Gen. Odd Bull, Secretary-
General U Thant's personal repre-
sentative in the area, will fly to
Cairo in the next few days to work
out arrangements with the Egyp-
tians for the posting of observers
on their lines. He will then work
out arrangements with the Israelis.
Both countries have the right to de-
termine from which contries they
will accept observers.
(Ambassador Gideon Rafael at
the United Nations notified the sec-
retary-general Wednesday morning
of the Israeli acceptance. An Is-
raeli mission spokesman said the
Israeli action reflected his coun-
try's desire to see the cease fire
effective. It is understood in UN
circles that Egypt does not want to
admit Canadian nationals as obser-
vers.
A UN spokesman said the ob-
servers will not set up a buffer
zone. They will, he said, have ob-
servation posts and will have free-
dom of movement.)
The Israeli decision had been de-
layed pending receipt in Jerusa-
lem of the exact text of the Secur-
ity Council's decision. What Israel
sought to avoid at all costs was any
situation which would perpetuate
the 1949 agreements which Israel
insists the Arab attack last month
rendered void.
Israel has agreed to permit Gen.
Bull to use Government House,
former headquarters of the United
Nations Truce Supervision Organi-
zation, as headquarters for the
cease-fire observation team. The
building and the 150 dunams (37.5
acres) on which it stands have
been declared the property of the

other countries of the Near
East." He said these shipments
were "significant" and at a level
that indicated Moscow is "try-
ing to replace the equipment
lost."

The department spokesman said
that "it seems clear to us that the
great powers should be working
for a limitation of arms in the
Near East and not a resumption

of the old race." He recalled Presi-
dent Johnson's statement of June
19 that the recent Middle East
conflict was "a demonstration of
the danger of the arms race in
this area."
In separate statements, three
members of the Senate who have
just returned from Israel, urged
that the United- States supply
Israel with the arms and equip-
ment necessary to offset the Soviet
supplies to Egypt and Syria.
Sen. Daniel B. Brewster, a mem-
ber of the Senate Armed Services
Committee, said Tuesday that
"there can be no doubt that the

Arabs were the aggressors who be-
gan the war" and that the United
States should supply arms to Israel
to balance the renewed flow of
Russian weapons to the Arab
states. The Maryland Democrat
vigorously opposed all military and
economic aid for the Arabs. He
said it was "incredible" that
America should support any na-
tion with hostile intent ions
towards Israel.-
Sen. Vance Hartke, Indiana

Democrat, said that "there is
not any question but that we are
going to provide arms to Israel."
He said Israel was ready to talk
peace but that the Arabs were
not and he said he would press

World to Welcome
Reunited Jerusalem
UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (JTA)
—The Israel government told the
United Nations it was confident
that "world opinion will welcome
the new prospect" of a Jerusalem
thriving "in unity, peace and spiri-
tual elevation," and gave no in-
dication that it intended to com-
ply with a General Assembly de-
mand that it rescind its legislation
which made the formerly Jordan-
held Old City part of the mu-
nicipality of Jerusalem.
The Israeli reply to the letter
addressed to Foreign Minister Abba
S. Eban by Secretary-General U
Thant "as a matter of urgency"
was delivered to the secretary-
general by Ambassador Gideon
Rafael Monday and was made

public Tuesday. Thant made no
comment on the reply nor did he
give any evaluation of it. A UN
spokesman said that would be
the function of the General As-
sembly.
Eban reviewed the status of Je-
rusalem for the past 19 years when
it was governed "by a regime
which refused to give due ac-
knowledgement to universal re-
ligious concern. The city was di-
vided by military demarcation
lines. Houses of worship were de-
stroyed and desecrated in acts of
vandalism. Instead of peace and
security, there was hostility and
frequent bloodshed. The principle
of freedom of access to the holy
places of all the three monothe-
istic religions was violated with
regard to Jews, but not to them
alone."
Referring to the Pakistan resolu-
tion, Eban said "the term `annexa-
tion' used by supporters of the
resolution is out of place. The
measures adopted relitte to the
integration of Jerusalem in the

the State Department for an
American initiative to bring the
Arabs to a peace conference.
Another Indiana Democrat, Sen.
Birch Bayh, expressed hope the administrative and municipal
United States would implement its spheres and furnish a legal basis
agreement to sell jet planes to for the protection of the holy
Israel and to take other necessary places in Jerusalem."
Eban then outlined the Israeli
steps.

Admiral Igor Molotsov, com-
mander of the Soviet Naval Flo-
tilla that has arrived in Port
Said and Alexandria, served
notice that his ships were "fully
prepared to cooperate with the
United Arab Republic armed
forces in repelling any aggres-
sion."

This was the first known state-
ment by a responsible Soviet au-

laws and regulations for the pro-
tection of the holy places and "the
new mingling of Arabs and Jews
in free and constant association."

He described the measures taken
by the Jerusalem municipality to
improve conditions in the Old
City.
As to the holy places, Eban said
that Israel does not doubt her
own will and capacity "to secure
