“Israel’s sovereignty will be jealously defended against any encroachment,” Defense Minister Pinchas Lavon warned today at a rally in Herzl Forest. It is easy to loss sovereignty, he stressed, but difficult to regain it.

The rally was the fourth annual be held by veterans of the Givati Brigade and included military exercises and sport events. Maj. Gen. Moshe Dayan, Chief of Staff of the Israel Defense Army, and highranking army officers, attended.
