Letters Written by Rosenwasser to Family Delivered; Watchman Still Prisoner

Shmuel Rosenwasser, a 50-year-old watchman from Metullah, on Israel’s northern border who was kidnapped by terrorists on Dec. 31, 1969, is still in captivity. This week five letters he wrote were delivered to his family which now lives in a village near Haifa. The letters were delivered by a representative of Israel’s Red Magan David which received them through the International Red Cross. There was no explanation of why the five letters, written on different dates, were delivered at the same time. The Jewish Telegraphic Agency learned that Rosenwasser has received letters and parcels from his family.
