100 Palestine Arabs to Be Repatriated from Lebanon to Israel

Download PDF for this date

One hundred Palestine Arab refugees currently living in Lebanon will be repatriated to Israel within the next few months under the terms of an agreement reached yesterday in the Israeli-Lebanese Mixed Armistice Commission. The refugees, all of whom have close relatives living in the Jewish State, will be repatriated under Israel’s long-standing policy of reuniting Arab families, some of whose members remained in Israel.
