A strike by employees of Cable and Wireless throughout Israel today halted all direct cable links between this country and Britain. Cables were being routed through government facilities via Paris.

The Cable and Wireless employees are demanding compensation from the company, which is to be taken over by the Israel Government. No time limit on the strike was set.
