Download PDF for this date

Four members of a new settlement for Tripolitanian immigrants located near the Egyptian-held Gaza area, who were reported missing last week, were returned to Israel territory yesterday, following intervention by the mixed Israel-Egyptian armistice commission.

The four Jewish settlers reported that they were well-treated while they were in Egyptian custody. They said the Egyptians questioned them about the Israel Army and about Tripolitanian immigration to Israel.
