Israel Protests to Big Powers Against Egypt’s Extended Blockade

The Israel Government today presented a note against Egypt to the diplomatic representatives of the United States, Britain and France for transmission to their governments. The note charged the Egyptian Government with extending its illegal blockade against Israel by seizing in meat shipment from Ethiopia destined for the Jewish State. Israel pointed out that this act goes beyond Egypt’s own definition of preventing any “war material” from reaching Israel.
