[Karameh, Jordan]: [H2H][HIS][CSL]: After participating with the United Arab Command in the Six Day War, the Palestinian Liberation Organization command and military units withdrew east to the refugee camp at al-Karameh, a small town on the east side of the River Jordan. Here, the Palestinian political leaders set about reorganized and rebuilding. The Israelis seized this opportunity and prepared to cross the River Jordan with the sole purpose of eliminating the Palestinian leadership. Elements of the Israeli 7th Armoured and 35th Parachute Brigade were part of the primary assault. Centurions and halftracks loaded with paratroopers prepared to cross the river and drive to al-Karameh to link up with a parachute company that was to be air assaulted into the low hills east of the town. The Israeli's had expected the Jordanians to stay out of the fight as the IAF dropped leaflets telling the Jordanian army that there was no intention of harming them. As dawn broke on the morning on March 21, the assault began. [ALL][This scenario only deals with the assault and crossing at the Allenby Bridge][1.00]

The Egyptians must break through the Israeli line ASAP with their mobile infantry to capture & defend the high value VP sites before the Israeli reinforcements come up.
