Download PDF for this date

Reports reaching Israel via the Israeli Embassy in Nicosia, Cyprus stated that all Israelis now in Cyprus were fine–following the reported military coup that apparently toppled Archbishop Makarios’ regime and installed a Greek-inspired officers’ junta.

Besides the Israeli Embassy there are several Israeli experts from Israel or in United Nations agencies in Cyprus as well as representatives of El Al, Zim and private firms that usually conduct business with Cypriot merchants and traders. Events in Cyprus occupied the largest part of news events in Israel today because of its proximity to Israel.
