Download PDF for this date

Four of the 13 survivors of the downed Libyan airliner died tonight, three in a field hospital in Sinai and one at Beersheba Hospital. Nine injured passengers were brought to Beersheba by an Israeli Army plane which was delayed two hours because of bad weather in Sinai. The whole medical staff of Beersheba Hospital was recruited within minutes and efforts were made to save the lives of the injured, most of whom were in critical condition. Among the injured are two women. Arab radio stations started this evening a strong attack on Israel over the plane incident.
