(After
a
week's
fighting,Israelilosses
are
estimated
at
100-105
aircraft,
650-700
tanks,
as
many
as
4
ships,
and
2,700-3,200
men. Arab
lossesare
estimated
at
210-220aircraft,950-1,000 tanks,20-25
ships, and
12,600-15,600 men. Supply
problems
appear
most
acute
for
the Israelis;
pilotsyesterdaywere
instructed
to
conserve both
fuel and
ordnance.
The
movement
to
Syria
of
a
Jordanian brigade
that was
scheduled
for
tonight
reportedly
has
been
postponed
untilSundaynight,when
it is
to
take
upa
positionbetweenDar'a
and
Shaykh
Miskin.However,
theremay
be
furtherdelaysbecause
of
opposition
to
the
move
from
high-levelgovernment
figures.
These
critics
fear
that
the
brigade
may
be
chewed
up
before
it
everarrives,
and
question
why
Jordan's
force
should
movebefore
those
of
suchother
conservativeArab
states
as
SaudiArabia.
For
his
part,
King
Husaynreported
