Download PDF for this date

No Israeli-made weapons which were sold to foreign governments, have been resold to any third party, Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion reassured the Cabinet here today. He told the Cabinet that authoritative statements to this effect have been received by Israel from “the governments concerned.”

Mr. Ben-Gurion reiterated this assurance as a result of recurring press reports, alleging that Israel-made Uzzi submachine guns were being used by the Portuguese to help repress independence rebels in Angola, Africa.
