Syria Returns Captured Boat to Israel; Ship Reaches Haifa

The S.S. “Nachman,” Israeli fishing boat seized in international waters last week by a Syrian naval vessel, returned here today with its master and crew. However, fish valued at 3,000 Israeli pounds had to be dumped. The entire catch was spoiled because the “Nachman’s” refrigeration machinery was put out of commission by the Syrians during the few days the boat was interned.
