• TEL AVIV (JTA) — Israel
has asked Lebanon to return
the two pilots of the Phan-
tom plane that crashed Mon-
day over Lebanese territory.
The rquest was relayed
through the International Red
Cross Committee. As a first
step Israel urged that a Red

Cross representative visit the
pilots immediately. The pilots
were forced to bail out in
the vicinity of Mt. Herman.
(Relations between Syria
and Lebanon were strained
this week over Lebanon's re-
fusal to hand over the two
-Israeli pilots to Syria, it was
reported here from Beirut.
(Lebanon rejected both Is-
raeli and Syrian requests, ar-
guing that Lebanon need not
yield the pilots as long as
hostilities continued. A Syri-
an government spokesman
said, in a public statement
in Damascus, that it was
"shameful to place Syria,
which is shedding blood for
the purpose of liberation and
dignity, on the same level as
the Israeli enemy.)
It was not certain whether
the Phantom jet had been
downed by a Syrian anti-air-
craft missile, as the Syrians
claimed, or by a malfunc-
tion, as Israel reported. Later
it was reported in Israel that
the plane crashed because of
a fire in the plane which
might have been due to a

Israeli casualties were re-
ported. A military spokesman
said artillery and tank fire
was exchanged on the south-
ern Golan Heights and in the
Syrian enclave captured by
Israel during the Yom Kip-
pur War. He said the Syrians
also fired from time to time
at Israeli positions on Mt.
