S. and South Vietnamese1 forces defending Saigon approaches counted 3.17 North Vietnamese and Viet Cong killed in heavy fighting that ended Thursday near the Cambodian border. It was the biggest battle since the bombing halt and the first major Communis' attack in three weeks. Allied communiques claiming victory said at least 1 ,(XKJ Communist troops were involved in the abortive attempt to overrun a base camp tiU miles northwest of Saigon manned by South Vietnamese rangers. Men of the U.S. 1st Cuvdlrv, Division i Airmobile i. recently moved into the area, joined the battle. There was no overall report on allied losses, but the U.S. command said two Americans were killed and five wounded in fighting around a rubber plantation three miles from the main focus of action. Elsewhere, American head quarters reported seven incidents involving North Vietnamese troops operating in the Demilitarized Zone since the end of American bombing attacks on North Vietnam, and Communist forces shot down a U.S. helicopter over the central highlands, killing two crewmen and wounding lour. In the Cambodian frontier fighting, about 1 ,(HM North Vietnamese launched four ground attacks Wednesday night and early Thursday against the ranger outpost, and each thrust was hurled back by a force of 350 defenders. In addition to the North Vietnamese regulars who were killed, another 10 were reported captured along with 70 weapons and about 3,000 pounds of ammunition, the U.S. command said. South Vietnamese military sources said the 1st Cavalry Division troops and their helicopter gunships killed at least lti" Communists after the final assault on the ranger camp was thrown back at 6:30 a.m. Thursday. The cavalry division, which had been assigned to outposts just south of the DMZ, was shifted into the Cambodian border area to meet what U.S. headquarters described as a "substantial threat" from Communist forces. Three North Vietnamese divisions, about 36,000 men, are believed massed in the region 40-70 miles northwest of Saigon. The fighting Wednesday and Thursday was In the same general area where American troops crushed a Communist assault on Oct. 25, and reported killing 109 North Vietnamese. In the latest reported DMZ action, U.S. spokesmen said 10 to 15 North Vietnamese soldiers fired on an Army observation plane flying over the area early Thursday. The plane was not hit and the pilot directed U.S. artillery fire that blasted Communist positions and triggered seven secondary explosions. President Johnson, in an nouncing the bombing halt over North Vietnam which began Nov. 1. said it could not be sustained if the North Vietnamese "abused" the DMZ. The helicopter lost over the central highlands was shot down west of An Khe, about 250 miles north of Saigon. It was the 921st U.S. helicopter shot down over South Vietnam. In Saigon, the U.S. command reported that 166 Americans were killed and 1,253 were wounded in the war last week. The battlefield deaths, in the first week of the bombing halt, were the highest in a month. Communist losses for the week ended last Saturday were placed at 1,431 killed, lowest toll in five weeks.
