for
renewed
attacks.

however,dropped
over
the
last
twodaysand,
with
one
excep-tion
on
the
Syrianfront, were generallyminor.

hastily

Caironewspapers continue
to
stressEgypt'sabilityand
will
to
fight
if
Israel persists
in
"violating"
international agreements,
particularly
the
six-point
cease-fire
accord.
The
semi-official
paper
Al

that
"Israel
is
mistaken
to
think that
there
is
an
alternative
to
the
resumption
of
fighting
in
order
to
implement
all
provisions
of the
cease-fire arrangements."Other papers
warned
of

willingness

unit,three
tanks,

TheIsraelis contend
that the
clash
was
sparked
when
the
Syrians fired
on
a

Israeli
forward
line.The
Syriansreportedly
employed
small
