An arms cache consisting of 10 ,
bazooka shells, 20 grenades, two
rifles and four sub-machine guns
was later discovered in a garage
in Beth Hanina village along with
a pile of El Fatah posters.
Four gang members were ar-
rested in Ramoon village. Eight
were arrested at Dahariya village
on Mt. Hebron where 11 sub-ma-
chine guns, one medium machine
gun and more grenades were
found. Another four were seized in
Gaza along with seven submachine
guns, one heavy machine gun and
a bazooka.
After machine - gunning the
watchman, the terrorists blew up
three tractors with high explosive
charges, set fire to a fuel storage
tank and destroyed other machine-
ry and water pipes. Border police
followed their trail across the old
Israel-Jordan armistice line to the
village of Kattana. A house-to- ,
house search, aided by Army heli-
copters, was carried out there and
in nearby villages where a curfew
was imposed. The saboteurs left
leaflets identifying themselves as

Three anti-vehicle mines were

were planted on a road used by
border patrols.

`Cutting Diplomatic Ties
Hurt Arab Nations'

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

LONDON—The Times observed
in an editorial Tuesday that more
damage was done to the Arab
countries than to the countries with
which they severed diplomatic re-
lations during last June's war with
Israel. The editorial referred to
Egyptian President Nasser's ad-
mission, in a Look magazine inter-
view, that his charges that Ameri-
can and British aircraft aided Is-
rael in the Six-Day War were
based on "suspicion" and "misin-
formation."
Nasser's original accusation was
followed by a flurry of severed dip-1
lomatic relations between t h e
Arabs and the Anglo-Americans,1
the Times said. "These diplomatic
links are only now slowly being
put together again."

Jordanians fired artillery and
mortars at Israeli units across the
Jordan river demarcation line Tues-
day night in the third such incident
in less than 12 hours. A military
spokesman said the artillery fire
came from a point on the east bank
of the river south of the Um
Shurt bridge. Israeli units returned
the fire whereupon the Jordanians

used mortars in an attempt to

knock out the Israeli guns, but
were silenced by Israeli artillery.
No casualties were reported.
The Jordanians initiated two ex-
changes of fire along the demarca-
tion line Tuesday at 10 a.m. and
again at noon.
