Israeli Military Bans Communists from Residence in Nazareth

Military authorities announced today that Assan Habib secretary of the Nazareth Communist Party, and three Communist colleagues, had been banned for one month from entering Nazareth. They were charged with inciting Nazareth’s Arab residents to be disloyal to Israel.

The Communist Party responded with distribution of posters protesting the exclusions and claiming that the order raised to 14 the number of Communists banned from Nazareth. The four party members live in villages near Nazareth.
