Military Mission Leaves Israel for Training in Yugoslavia

An Israel military mission consisting of half-dozen Colonels and Lt. Colonels left for Belgrade today to take up an invitation from the Yugoslav Army to study its training courses. The Air Force plane carrying the officers will make a stop at Athens.

The invitation to Israel was extended by Yugoslavia several weeks ago as an expression of friendship toward the Jewish State. Israeli military leaders were also invited to witness the fall maneuvers of the Yugoslav Army.
