THE TIMES MONDAY JANUARY 18 1943

MILLEROVO RETAKEN BY THE RED ARMY

RUSSIANS REPORTED ACROSS THE DONETZ

ROSSOSH IN SOVIET HANDS AGAIN

FINAL ASSAULT ON SIXTH ARMY

The Russians in a special announcement last night stated that Millerovo, the important junction on the Voronezh-Rostov railway, has been captured and the garrison almost completely wiped out.

In their new offensive south of Veronezh, details of which were announced earlier, the Red Army has recaptured the railway station of Alexeyevka. Six hundred other places, including Rossosh, have also been taken. The Moscow radio announced later last night that Soviet forces had crossed the Donetz.

NEW ATTACK LAUNCHED BY EIGHTH ARMY

ROMMEL WITHDRAWS FROM WHOLE OF BUERAT POSITION

MANY HEAVY RAIDS ON TRIPOLI

The Eighth Army has started a new and successful attack, and Rommel has withdrawn from the whole of the Buerat position. By Saturday evening his positions in the Sedada-Bir Tala area were being engaged.

Tripoli has been subjected to heavy raids by day and night.
