5,000 at Jerusalem Reburial Services for Soldiers Who Died in Sinai Campaign

Some 5,000 mourners attended re-burial services on Mt. Herzl yesterday for 89 Israeli soldiers killed in action in the Sinai and Gaza Strip last June. The bodies which were originally buried in a temporary war cemetery near Kibbutz Beerin, were re-interred in the central military cemetery on Mt. Herzl.
