JERUSALEM (Jul. 10)
Premier David Ben Gurion today informed United Nations Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold that he had given instructions to allow the Arab villagers on Mt. Scopus to use a road through Israel territory, as a means of facilitating Mr. Hammarskjold’s efforts to obtain Jordan agreement to Israeli use of Hadassah Hospital and Hebrew University facilities on Mt. Scopus.
In a letter to the UN chief, the Premier noted that use of the Israeli road by issawia villagers was conditioned on the Jordanians refraining from attempts to encroach on Israel territory.
