Egyptian-Russian Rift Hinted; El Fatahs Stalled
(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)
LONDON—The Telegraph re-
ported from Beirut Tuesday that
friction is growing between Egyp-
tians and their Russian instruc-
tors and advisors in the military
and industrial establishments. Ac-
cording to the correspondent, Rich-
ard Beeston, resentment of the
Russians rigid discipline and Com-
munist indoctrination is especially
acute in the Egyptian Army which
dismissed 30 officers in recent
weeks for adopting "anti-Soviet
The Egyptians are also com-
plaining about the lack of modem
offensive weapons from Russia,
particularly missiles, Dr. Beeston
reported. He said that Russia's re-
armament of Egypt appears to
have come to a halt and the Soviets
are now sending only spare parts
for which the Egyptians pay
dearly. These are among the sub-
jects that President Nasser is ex-
'ected to take up with Soviet lead-
ers when he flies to Moscow on
Thursday, Beeston said.
Eric Downton, writing in . the
same newspaper, said on Tuesday
that Egypt has received all the
military equipment from Russia
it can properly handle at this time.

But Nasser is expected to ask
Moscow for more up to date wea-
ponry including missiles and war
planes even though the quality of
Egyptian pilots still leaves much
to be desired, he wrote. The Rus-
sians, said Downton, are almost
certain to demand and get more
extensive facilities at Egyptian
naval and air bases. According
to the writer, the Russians do not
want to risk the destruction of the
revolutionary governments in
Cairo, Baghdad and Damascus in
another war with Israel. There-
fore, they are expected to coun-
sel moderation toward Israel in
the United Nations. "For Russian
Middle East tactics, it is better
that Israel should exist," Downton

Saboteurs were active in the
Gaza Strip and in the Dead Sea
area night where explosions caused
slight damage but no casualties.
Two explosive charges went off
under two small railroad bridges
'near Khan Yunis, in the southern
end of the Strip and another det-

the town of Gaza. Two other ex-
plosive charges, discovered near
the Gaza airport and near Khan

A military tribunal in Gaza im-
posed stiff prison sentences on five
members of an Arab spy ring that
had been supplying Egypt with
military information from the Gaza
Strip. Abdual Wahab, ringleader
and its chief communications man,
received three sentences totaling
49 years, but the court ruled that
they are to be served concurrently
which means that Wahab will be
jailed for 20 years. He was found
guilty of transmitting military in-
telligence to Egypt, possession of
military intelligence and member-
ship in an underground terrorist
organization. Wahab was formerly
a. sergeant in the Egyptian signal
His four subordinates were each
given sentences totaling 34 years
but will serve only 15 year terms
according to the court's ruling.
Discount Reports of British
Pressure .on Rusk for
Middle East 'Timetable'
JERUSALEM (JTA)—The for-
eign ministry discounted press re-
ports that Britain's Foreign Secre-
tary Michael Stewart was trying
to infuence United States Secre-
tary of State Dean Rusk to agree
to a "timetable" for implementa-
tion of the Security Council's Nov.
22 resolution on the Middle East.
The Daily Telegraph and the
Daily Mail reported in London that
while at the NATO sessions in Ice-
land both Stewart and Rusk were
concerned over the lack of prog-
ress in Middle East peace efforts
and were preparing to pressure
both sides toward a compromise.
The Telegraph said that Soviet
Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko
had hinted to Stewart in Moscow
two months ago that he would be
ready to join Britain and the U.S.
in Middle East peace efforts.
Israel foreign ministry sources
said the British Foreign Office had
advised the Israel embassy in Lon-
don that there was agreement
with the Soviet Union "only on the
aim of peace."
The United States has informed
Israel that there was no truth in
British press reports that Washing-
ton had agreed to a "timetable"
for implementation of the Nov. that "we have to buy weapons,
