Mixed Armistice Body Charges Israel with Expelling 350 Beduin

A resolution adopted by the Egyptian-Israel Mixed Armistice Commission, with Israel absent, yesterday condemned Israel for allegedly expelling a group of 350 Beduin from the Negev into the United Arab Republic.

The MAC, which Israel is boycotting, called on Israel to implement provisions of a MAC resolution of May 30, 1951, dealing with transfers of persons across frontiers or armistice lines and to a resolution calling for repatriation of certain Beduin tribes to Israel-controlled territory.
