Several Major Casualties in Arab-Israel Clashes

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Israeli and
Arab forces battled again Tuesday
along the Israel-Jordan demarca-
tion line and across the Suez Canal.

The only Israeli casualties reported
were one soldier slightly wounded
when a border patrol was attacked
south of Nablus Monday night and
a border policeman injured in an
exchange of fire in the Beisan area
early Tuesday morning. The in-
jured border policeman was hos-
piralized.
An Egyptian military spokesman
said Tuesday on Cairo Radio that
Egyptian and Israeli gunners fought
a five hour artillery duel across!
the northern end of the Suez Canal
Tuesday morning. Israeli spokes-
men. however. reported only spor-
fro:n the Egyptian side Monday
night and Tuesday morning and'
said there was no concentration of
tire at any point. •
About 30 mortar shells were fired
from Jordan territory Monday
night at Nahal Tzofar, a para-mili-
tary settlement in the Arab region
south of the Dead Sea. A military
spokesman said no casualties or
damage were caused by the 60
millimeter shells. He did not say
w hether the attack came from
guerrillas or Jordanian regulars.
Fighting in the Beisan area, nine
miles south of the Sea of Galilee

began

when saboteurs opened up

an Israeli patrol from inside
Jordan. Israeli forces spotted their
po.itions and silenced them, a mill-

An Israeli spokesman said Israeli
troops and Arab guerrillas fought a
mortar battle across the Lebanese
border late Saturday without cas-

reported killed and two others seri-

Arab Strikers Detained

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Eleven
East Jerusalem Arabs were de-
tained Tuesday for hostile activi-
ties under emergency regulations

permitting administrative detention
up to three months. The detainees
were said to have been active in
' organizing the strikes on May 15
and June 5 as well as demonstra-
tions and riots. Two of them are
women. Nine Jerusalem and West
Bank residents were expelled to
Jordan on Monday for similar acts.

According to Cooley, Cairo con-
siders the estimated $400,000,000
cost of a nuclear weapons pro-
gram prohibitive. Israel and Egypt
both began peacetime nuclear-
energy programs in the 1950s.
(There have been a flurry of
reports recently that Israel has
produced nuclear bombs, em-
phatically denied by Israeli
authorities. It is generally con-
ceded however that Israel has
the technical capability to pro-
duce such weapons.)
Cooley noted that nuclear re-
search has been conducted at Is-
rael's Soreq research center since
1952 under safeguards and inspec-
tion of the International Atomic
Energy Agency (IAEA) in Vienna.
Atomic research is also conducted

at the Weizmann Institute of Sci-
ence in Rehovot, at the Hebrew
University in Jerusalem and the
Haifa Technion, he said.

salem municipality announced that

which is operated without IAEA
safeguards or inspection, Cooley
wrote. He said that Israel has no
known means of manufacturing en-
riched uranium, but the Dimona re-
actor can manufacture plutonium
from uranium found in the Dead
Sea phosphate beds.
Cooley noted that Egypt signed
its first agreement on nuclear co-
operation with the Soviet Union in
1956, and in 1961 the Russians built
a 2,000 kilowatt reactor at Inchass
in lower Egypt. It has no known
capacity for manufacturing pluto-
nium in military quantities, nor
has Egypt, like Israel, developed
natural uranium supplies, the cor-
respondent wrote.
