Canada to Review Its Decision on Sale of Sabre Jets to Israel

Download PDF for this date

The Canadian Government announced today that it will review its decision to permit the sale of 24 Sabre jets to-Israel. None of the aircraft has yet left Canada, a government spokesman pointed out.

The review is being made in the light of reports of Israel’s advance into the Sinai desert, the spokesman said. He added that all Canadians in Israel, Jordan, Syria and Egypt have been advised to leave these countries, taking advantage of the United States civilian evacuation facilities.
