Military Government Grants $57,000 Loan to Nablus for Municipal Works

The military government has granted a $57,000 loan to the Nablus township on the occupied West Bank to build roads and extend its electric power and water supply systems. In another development, the Agriculture Ministry said exports from the West Bank to Jordan amounted to $14 million between June, 1967 and June, 1968. More than half of the exports were agricultural produce. Several hundred trucks crossed the Allenby and Damiya bridges daily in both directions, the Ministry said. The marketing of agricultural products is in the hands of West Bank merchants.
