3 More Bodies Found on Golan

Download PDF for this date

The bodies of three men, all handcuffed, were discovered during the weekend in the Khoushaniyeh area on the Golan Heights. The bodies were taken to the Institute of Forensic Science for examination. It seems very probable that the bodies are of two Jerusalemites–Aharon Eigel, 17 and his brother Joseph, 24 and their guest tourist from Spain, Phillipe Mariabo Corengo.

The three left for a tour of the Golan Heights in a hired car for Yom Kippur day. The car, found in the Khoushaniyeh area when the Israelis recaptured that area, had been hit by hundreds of bullets. There was no sign of the occupants. An Israeli soldier later testified he saw the three bodies near the car when he retreated. Last week a settler noticed a grave-like place near the Khoushaniyeh point. A search in the area revealed the bodies with their hands tied behind their backs.
