The United States Embassy informed the Israel Government today that four Piper Cub planes that the Government had in readiness, in compliance with an American request, for use in combatting a locust plague in Iran, would not be required. It is understood that the plague has reached such proportions than larger aircraft that Israel has available, would be required.
