Jordan Accepts Israel’s Offer on Admission of 200 Bedouins

Download PDF for this date

Jordan today withdrew a complaint filed with the Israel-Jordan Mixed Armistice Commission that Israel had driven a group of 200 Bedouins across the border into Jordan. The withdrawal followed an offer by Israel to admit the Bedouins after an investigation by the Commission found no proof that the Bedouins had ever resided permanently in Israel.

Israel’s delegate told the Commission that Israel’s readiness to admit the Bedouins was to be considered as a one-time gesture without prejudice and should be construed as an earnest policy of cooperation and good relations with neighbors.
