Download PDF for this date

The settlers of Kiryat Arba, the Jewish quarter in Hebron, complained yesterday to Finance Minister Pinhas Sapir about the slow rate of development of their settlement. The settlers’ complaint was expressed during Sapir’s first visit to Kiryat Arba. The visit had a political significance against the background of Sapir’s reservations about the establishment of the quarter and the speed of its development. During the visit, Sapir told the settlers that everything he had promised them had been carried out, adding that his Ministry would see to it that they received the money promised for building industries and roads.
