Israel Permits Syrian Planes to Fly over Its Territory

Download PDF for this date

The Israel Government has “conditionally agreed” to permit Syrian passenger airlines to fly over Israel territory, the Times of London reported today.

Israel fighter planes forced down a Syrian plane earlier this month when it violated Israel air space but the plane, with its crew and passengers, was later released. The Israel-Syrian Mixed Armistice Commission refused this week to censure Israel for the action.
