This Day in History: Civil War Breaks Out in Jordan

I found this in THE TIMES, quoted from September 18, 1970.

“The air over Jordan is thick with appeals to end the fighting, but of the fighting itself there are few reliable reports. This is natural when a conflict is sporadic and local, and when the objectives of the two sides are as much political as military. There are so many unknown elements. What are the Iraqi troops in Jordan doing? Has the Iraq Government wisely decided to keep out of other people’s quarrels?”
