Sixty-eight Viet Cong were reported killed, six captured, and 30 suspects detained, as against friendly casualties of 24 killed (1 US) and 43,wounded .(4 US), . Four helicopters supporting the.operation were damaged by. intensive, enemy: ground fire;'.one. Vietnamese river assault craft was sunk.arid another damaged. Enemy resistance to sweep operations by a battal- ion of US Marines, part of the amphibious assault op- eration launched on 30 September by US Seventh Fleet surface and air forces 40 miles south of Quang Ngai City, has thus far been limited to sporadic small-arms and automatic weapons fire. Viet Cong losses in the operation to date stand at 25 captured; no US combat casualties have been reported. In Binh Dinh Province, nine Vietnamese Army battalions are continuing a search-and-destroy opera- tion near the Phu Cu pass, with only light enemy con- tact thus far although three Viet Cong regiments are reported in the area. Meanwhile, northwest of Saigon, ground follow-up operations to the ?29 September B-52 Stratofort:ress-strike in Tay Tinh Province continue, but without significant results. 0 ME j 1 r 2X ------------------ Approved_ For Release 2009/01/23: CIA-RDP79TOO975AO08500270001_-8 Approved For Release 2009/01/23: CIA-RDP79T00975A008500270001-8 25X1 25X1 11 Political Developments in South. Vietnam: Premier Ky, in a major press conference yesterday, announced several previously anticipated military and cabinet changes emphasizing in particular the replacement of General Nguyen Huu Co as chief of the Joint General Staff and Co's elevation to the rank of deputy premier with added responsibilities as minister of war and reconstruction. The appointment of a military officer, former armed forces chief of operations General Nguyen Duc Thang, as secretary of rural construction, rather than an earlier designated civilian, may reflect last-minute urgings from Ky's military colleagues. eight SAM missile transporters were noted 25X1 at an army barracks in the Hanoi area. 25X1 It is possible that this area may be serving as a SAM support facility which is a necessary component of SAM d fenses for sustained missile o erations. 25X1 25X1 j 11 IN Military Developments In North Vietnam: At least The major theme of Ky's hour-long report on his first 100 days in office was one of confidence in blunting the Viet Cong drive and in improved social and economic conditions to be promoted in the "next 1,000 days." As evidence of his government's intention to revitalize the civil side of its struggle against the Communists, Ky recently outlined to US officials plans for a pacification program concentrating on three or four selected areas of the country and on improved quality of pacification workers and lines of authority.

Throughout yesterday Radio Karachi reported heavy fighting in progress in the Chhamb area of southern Kashmir where Indian troops allegedly were attempting to dislodge the Pakistanis from territory seized before the cease-fire. Spokesmen in New Delhi, however, denied any knowledge of hostilities in the Chhamb sector but accused Pakistan of committing violations at nu- merous other points along the cease-fire line. Last night, the Pakistani representative to the United Nations delivered a letter to Secretary General Thant protesting what was termed India's "clear vio- lation" of the cease-fire agreement and requesting U Thant to inform the Security Council. In the UN Wed- nesday, Pakistan charged that India had issued an ultimatum demanding :Pakistan withdraw from the Chhamb area within 24 hours, or face an Indian attack. general staff feels that the cease-fire merely gave the Indians time to regroup forces and that the only alterna- tive to renewed all-out warfare is occupation of Kashmir by a UN peace force The British Government is instructing its UN delegation that the situation is too unstable to permit further progress toward settling the India-Pakistan dispute until a troop withdrawal is achieved. The British believe that the Security Council should insist on a with- drawal, setting a time limit backed up by sanctions if necessary. the Pakistani As of 30 September, 31 of the expected 117 UNIPOM observers--responsible for the India-Pakistan border, and 40 of the 79 observers pledged to UNMOGIP--respon- sible for the Kashmir cease-fire line, had arrived.

In a 28 Sep- tember conversation with UN Secretary General Thant, however, Soviet Foreign Minister Gromyko reportedly responded somewhat negatively to the proposed four- power Security Council committee to assist U Thant in implementing the resolutions concerning India and Pakistan.
