After
threedays of
heavy
fighting,
Israsl
hasregained
most
ofthe
territory
it
lost
to
Syria
in
the
Golan
Heights,andhas
con-
tained
Egyptian
forces
to
a
narrowarea along
the
east
bank
of the
Suez
Canal. No otler Arab states
havebecome
significantly
involved
in
the
fighting.

out
in

early
afternoon
of

Syria
breached
Israeli
lines at two
points,captured
the
town
of
Qunaytirah,
and
for
a
time
held
considerable
terri-tory
in
the
6entral
sector..
By
early this
morning,
Israeli forceshad
recapturedalmost
all
territory
up
to the
previous
cease-firelines,
and--according
to Israeli
accounts--hadsurrounded
some
Syrian units.
Losses
have been substantialon
both
sides.The
Is-
raelis
have
admitted
losing
at
least
35
aircraft
and
150

in
the
Golan
battle alone.

are
placed
at

by
the
Israelis,
who
claim
to
havedestroyed
37
Syrian
aircraft
in
yesterday's
fighting.
On
the
Sinai
front,
fightingwas
initially
less
intense.The Israelis
apparently
were satisfied
to
contain
the
Egyptian
thrust
while
dealing
with
the
morepressing
situation
on
the
GolanHeights.The
Egyptians.
succeeded
in
putting
as
many
as
11
bridgesacross
the
canal,
someof
which
were
still
in
use
early
this
morning.
As
many
as
five
Egyptian
infan-
try
divisions
and
600-700tanks
have
moved
into
the
Sinai,
according
to
Israeliaccounts.The
Israelis
now
claim
to
have
hemmed
in
thisforce,
butacknowl-edge
that
removing
it
will
be
a formidable
task.Contrary
to
their public
statements,
the
Egyptianshave
not
made
a
concerted
effort
to
strike
into the
Sinai,
suggesting
that
their
strategy
may
be
to
take
and
hold
a
relatively
small
area
with
a
view
to
its
politicalrather
than
military
'advantages
.

pressures
of
other
Arab
leaders,
ranging
from
Libya's
President
Qadhafi
to
Saudi
Arabia's
King
