Download PDF for this date

Israeli Army authorities notified the local representative of the International Red Cross today that medical findings and the reports of the two Israeli pilots who had been held as prisoners of war in Egypt until their exchange last Saturday, indicated that they had not been treated by their Egyptian captors in accordance with the Geneva Convention.

The IRC has been invited to send representatives to visit the two Israeli pilots and see their condition. Both are confined to an Israeli hospital.
