resolution. As for King Hussein's
proposal to give Israel shipping
rights in the Suez Canal, Nasser
said, Israel could use the water-
way if peace was established.
In his view, peace could follow

only from Israeli willingness to
implement all points of the resolu-

tion, including withdrawal from oc-
cupied territories and a solution of
the Arab refugee problem that
would permit them to return to
their former homes.

Military sources denied that
Egyptian commandos entered or
held any Israeli positions in the
first commando raid which took
place Saturday evening opposite
Ismailia at the midpoint of the
canal. They said the raids, by
small groups of specially trained
commandos, represented a new
Egyptian policy of harassment
because constant artillery barrages
have failed.
The Cairo newspaper Al Ahram
said Egyptian commandos had
launched "numerous raids" across

"spring offensive" on Yom Haatz-
maut, little more than a month
short of the second anniversary
of the Six-Day War.
Terrorists have been making des-
perate attempts to infiltrate Israeli
territory in the past few day and
have been trying to persuade local
Arabs to join them in sabotage. ,
