Ih the morning, hours after a cease-fire had been arranged by the United Nations Truce Super¬ vision Organization, sporadic shelling continued from .the Syr¬ ian aide. At the same time, Israeli jet fighters chased from the skies four Syrian Russian-made MIQ- 17 fighter planes attempting to invade Israeli air space. The Syrian planes. Intercepted above Israel's northernmost settlement |of Metullah, were chased back Across their own territory. Syrian casualties and damage were estimated to be "much high¬ er" than Israel's.
