Rainstorm in Israel Subsides; Leaves Trail of Smashed Huts

Download PDF for this date

The rainstorm which lashed Israel and other areas of the Middle East late last week, eased off but left a trail of smashed huts and downed tents in immigrant work centers in various parts of the country. Jewish Agency work teams were busy today repairing damage, and re-erecting tents and other shelters. The occupants of the shelters had been moved elsewhere temporarily.
