Israeli jets struck four guerrilla
bases in Jordan in a pre-dawn
bombing and strafing attack Tues-
day. A miliary spokesman said
the targets were near the villages
of A Salt and El Nimrin. He said
all aircraft returned safely to their
bases. The attack, the second by
Israeli jets in two days, followed
Premier Golda Meir's warning
Monday that attacks against Is-
raeli border settlements would
bring "seven-fold" retaliation.

A significant drop in the num-
ber of guerrilla forays since Is-
raeli jets went into action
, against
their bases was noted by Israeli
officials Tuesday. For the first
time there was no Israeli inter-
ference with Jordanian workers
repairing the $85,000,000 East

by Israeli commandos recently.
Mrs. Meir said Monday that
Israeli would allow the repairs
on the assumption that the Jor-
danian government would re-
strain its army and guerrillas
from further attacks on Israeli
settlements. (See earlier story,
Page 16.)

In other fighting Monday, two
saboteuers were killed in a clash
with an Israeli patrol in the Arava
district south of the Dead Sea. One
Israeli soldier was wounded in an
artillery exchange with Egyptian
forces across the Suez Canal, and

one Israeli civilian was injured. A
military spokesman said the Egyp-
tian opened fire with artillery and
small arms in several sectors dur-
ing the night.
Israeli officials meanwhile adopt-
ed a wait-and-see attitude toward
Monday's military and political
shake-up in Jordan. King Hussein
appointed his uncle, Maj. Gen.
Nassar Ben Jamil, as commander-
in-chief of the Jordanian army, a
post the king himself had held. He

also demoted his pro-guerrilla
minister of interior, Akef Fayes,
and replaced him with the former
intelligence chief, Mohamed Rasoul
al Kailano, Gen. Ben Jamil and al
Kailani have both opposed the pres-
ence of Arab guerrillas in Jordan
and have warned the king against
the guerrillas rising power and in
fluence with the army. Observers
here believe King Hussein acted to
gain firmer control over his 50,000-
man army and to restrain guerrilla
activity which could bring heavier
reprisals from Israel. -
But Gen. Ben Jamil, in his first
statement after assuming supreme
command, pledged his full support
of what he called "properly organ-
ized" Commando action against
Israel. He said he supported guer-
rilla sorties that struck the enemy
in places the regular armed forces
could not reach. He singled out last
week's sabotage of oil pipelines in
Haifa and Monday's bomb blast in

the heart of Tel Aviv as the type of
guerrilla action he approved. "We
expect war at any time and we are
preparing for it," Gen. Ben Jamil
