In the first direct U.S. involvement in Guatemala's long-running war against leftist insurgents, three U.S. Army helicopters with American crews airlifted about 300 Guatemalan troops to a remote part of the Central American nation, the Pentagon and State Department announced Tuesday. Reagan Administration spokesmen said that the operation, requested last week by Guatemalan President Vinicio Cerezo Arevalo, was carried out Sunday and Monday by CH-47 Chinook helicopters.

The opposition attributed the decision to the government's slow response to human rights abuses and called it a "warning to the new government," scheduled to be chosen in a runoff election Jan. 6 between conservative opposition party candidates Jorge Carpio and Jorge Serrano.
