Download PDF for this date

Gen. Roberto Morean Soto, the Venezuelan Chief of Staff, arrived here last night for a two-week visit as the guest of the Israeli Defense Forces. He met today with Israeli chief of Staff Haim Bar-Lev; Gen. David Elazar, chief of the Headquarters Branch of the IDF, and Col. S. Levanon, commander of the Nahal, the agricultural-military formations. Soto said he wanted to learn as much as possible from the Israeli Army, especially the para-military agricultural Nahal, as vast areas of Venezuela are uninhabited and require cultivation.
