Strikes Paralyze Israel’s Radio, Television and Tele-communications

Israel was without regular radio, television or telecommunications for the second day today as a result of a strike by Journalists and news-writers employed by the Government-owned media who are demanding higher wages. Communications were paralyzed yesterday by a one-day strike of engineers and technicians for a higher cost-of-living allowance. Kol Israel radio, operated by a skeleton staff, is continuing to broadcast regular news bulletins.
