Download PDF for this date

Five hundred kilograms of medicine, including anti-biotics and medical equipment will be sent to India by the Israel government for the relief of the Bangla Desh refugees. The consignment was prepared for the government by the Israel Red Magen David and is addressed to the Indian Red Cross. It has been sent to Lydda Airport to await the first flight to India. It is the first official consignment by Israel for the Bangla Desh. A private group of Israelis recently shipped 500 tons of soya flour to India by sea.
