Download PDF for this date

A 75-ton Egyptian boat was intercepted last night in Israeli waters and towed into Haifa by a coast guard vessel, the Army spokesman reported today. Its crew of four is now being interrogated, he added. The ship, bound from Egypt for Beirut with a cargo of seaweed, apparently entered Israeli waters by mistake, according to the spokesman.
