In a recent clash southwest of Swedish peacekeeping officers had to abandon their positions when they were caught in a heavy burst of machine gun fire and an exchange of Israeli and Egyptian anti tank fire. the Canadian com- munications operation was far enough removed from the ceasefire lines to be relatively secure. Sources say the Swedes abandoned their position after attempting to get both sides to stop shooting by standing be- tween the opposing units and waving a blue UN flag fruitlessly. UN STEPS IN Austrian of- ficers with the UN in the area were able to get both sides to stop after the firing continued for several hours. Only 70 Canadians so far has been deployed to front-line positions in connection with their logistics and mumcations functions for the UN now standing at about men but with a projected size of roughly The full strength of the Canadian officers and men now has been most are still stationed at their Cairo head- quarters camp. Authorities say there is un- likely to be any significant change in this situation until after the Geneva peace conference later this month when both sides may begin pulling their forces back to rear leaving open buffer zones for UN patrols and inspection. Strategic experts here give little or no weight to con- tiguous rumors and predic- tions in Cairo of an imminent renewal of the war.

About 700 troops from the 3rd Army are in an isolated position to the north of the main body and have been without resupply since the war ended because of a dis- pute over the issue with the Israelis. Israel apparently is willing to let the peacekeeping force resupply the unit only if the 700 in hand over all their weapons to the UN. Egyptian authorities say this would be tantamount to surrender and refuse to concede to the demand.
