killed when their jeep and an
Army command car raced to the
aid of another jeep which had just
struck a mine, injuring its its
civilian and military occupants.
The mines had been laid by ter-
rorists on a road near the potash
evaporatien Bonds. Late last night
an Israeli petrol near the southern
tip of the Dead Sea encountered
a gang which is believed to have
planted the mines.
News of the battles in which 17
Arab geereiPas were killed was
withheld se as not to spoil Inde-
pendence Del- celebrations Thurs-
day and Friday. Twelve heavily
armed aueeeillas were killed by
an Israe'i nat•ol near Neot Kahikar
on the Jorden border south of the
Dead Sea Thursday night. Soviet-
made mechiee elms and hand gren-
ades were freind on the bodies.
Four raiders were killed in a clash
in the Jo•den Valley and a fifth
south of the yea of Galilee.

that three -1-azooka shells were
fired Frid-v night at the home
of the military governor of Jenin

Seven moee hazooka shells with a
timing 'mechanism attached, were
found concealed under tree
branches about 400 yards from the
governor's home.

first terrorist a c ti vi ty from
Lebanese soil in almost a year.

Kfar Ruppin and Ashdod Yacov,
in the Beisan Valley, were hit by
mortars at about 2:30 a.m. local
time. The shells exploded harm-
lessly in fields but Israeli units re-
turned the fire from the East
Bank of the Jordan. Six light mor-
tar shells were fired at the Battar-
dan religious quarter northwest of
Jerusalem. Attempts were made
to sabotage a water pumping sta-
tion at Hamadiyah. At Kibutz
Manera, six shells were fired, all
exploding harmlessly. •

Security sources reported Wed-
nesday that 43 El Fatah membera
have been killed, 11 wounded and
96 captured in various actions

began their so-called "spring offen-
sive." The sources noted that
n-ither El Fatah or any other
_Arab commando groups have been
able to take root among the
1.000,000 Arab residents of Israel
and Israeli-held territory. This has
forced them to rely on bases on
the east bank of the Jordan which

JERUSALEM (JTA)—The West
Bank town of Ramallah has not
been placed under curfew but
pr'vileges according to West Bank
residents have been withdrawn
as a result of the strike there on
Independence Day. The privileges,
rescinded by order of Defense
Minister Moshe Dayan. include
access into Israel, includine East
Jerusalem, and the denial of per-
mits for Ramallah residents to visit
Jordan or to receive visitors from
there. Such permits are granted
all other West Bank residents al-
most without restriction. The spe-
cial measures taken in Ramallah
were due to the nature of the
strike which was a demonstration
against Israel's Independence Day
narade in nearby Jerusalem. Un-
like some other West Bank towns

dividually by shutting down busi-
nesses for the day •and keeping.

Arabs militarily for a.. new war
against Israel but the United States
position. now is "that Israel can
defend itself with the arms it has,
that more would upset the Mideast
arms balance," the U.S. News &
World Report. said. The magazine
quoted former , 'U.S. Ambassador
to Moscow Foy Kohler as stating
that the Soviet feud with Red
China and• the Soviet penetration
of the Mideast are "Moscow's prin-
cipal • preoccupatiaons today and
will continue to be for the historic
period immediately ahead." The
critical time . for the Mideast was
set for mid-1969 because by then
Soviet training teams in Egypt,
Syrian and Iraq will have "'trained
enough Arabs to handle new wea-
pons. •
The ratio of Arab airpower over
Israel is "four to one now and
growing rapidly on the Arab side
—thanks to Russia. The Arabs
have nearly 150 Sukhoi-7 attack
planes and some 210 MIG-21 jets.
What Israel now wants most is
supersonic fighters to restore at
least the three to one adverse ratio
—but Washington has failed to
act," the maeazine said.
Instead of establishing bases
flying the Russian flag in the Mid-
east, the report said the new
technique of base building "in-
volves saturating countries like
Egypt, Syria. Iran. with modern
Soviet arms, equinment for air-
fields, ports, repair facilities, small
armies of Soviet technicians . . .
Thus, if war comes, these Arabs
countries are themselves bases,
ready and waiting for warships,
planes, and even airborne troops of
their Soviet ally."
