An Israeli border patrol killed an Arab infiltrator and captured another near the Jordan frontier, the Israeli military announced. An army spokesman said the guerrillas, carrying three Kalashnikov assault rifles and a pistol, encountered the patrol after crossing the border about 25 miles north of Jericho in the occupied West Bank. Although Israel and Jordan have technically been in a state of war for almost 20 years, Israel has praised Jordan in the past for preventing guerrilla infiltrations across the frontier.
