Middle East Tension Up Air Force, Navy Cover Landing DAMASCUS, Oct. 13 ian troops landed In Syria today or the first lime In modern his- ory to reinforce this country's defense against aggression from ny direction, a communique nounced. The joint Syrian-Egyptian Com- mand here said the Egyptians dis- embarked at the Mediterranean port of Latakia. The number and destination of he troops was not Riven. The Egyptian Middle East News Agen- cy reported In a Cairo dispatch :hat they landed under cover of Egyptian naval units and planes of both nations. The- Egyptian reinforcements were viewed here as connected with mounting Turkish-Syrian bor- der tension. Informed Egyptian sources said specialists and technicians from Egypt were already on hand. They reported these men had been flown in since mid-September. Armed forces of both Egypt and Syria, long closely allied, get their arms from the Soviet bloc. The common source of their weapons and ammunition should simplify their supply situation In any joint operations. (There was no Immediate com- ment in Washington from the Slate Department on develop- nenls. (The U.S. 6th Fleet Is In the .lecliterranean on training exer- cises. When trouble developed in Jordan last May the fleet was sent into the eastern Mediterra- nean to exert a calming Influence on the Middle East. There was no indication whether it might be re- deployed in the light of today's developments.) Both Syrian and Egyptian air squadrons, which fitted out with Soviet planes, gave the Egyptian naval units air cover on their way from Egypt to Syria, the communique said. It added that the Egyptian na- val units will begin "a "formal vis- it" in the Syrian port Monday. The move was taken under the two countries' mutual defense agreement which provides for joint military action in the face of aggression or the threat of aggres- sion against either country. Syria's Army Chief of staff Maj. Gen. Afif Bizry and Intelli- gence Chief Lt. col. Abdul Hamid Serraj went to Cairo early in Sep- tember to discuss strengthening the pact. Afterward Bizry an- nminred that joint plans for any contingency had been developed and said the armed forces of the two countries were considered a single unit, under Egyptian com- mand. The Moscow radio said that So- viet Vice Adm. V. F. Kotov had :alks in Damascus with Bizry and Serraj while a Soviet naval squad- ron was visiting Syria late last month. From a military viewpoint Egyptian units would be of little help against such a strong power as Turkey. But the move indicates readiness to active the Syrian- Egyptian joint command in case of renewed hostilities with Israel. The situation has been marked by rough lalk from both Washing- ton and Moscow. U. S. Secretary of State Dulles told the world the Over The Coffee Cup was taken at that time.
