The Transport Ministry here ordered port managers to bar the entry of arriving Israeli ships so as not to add to the number of vessels already idled by a strike of merchant marine officers and seamen called four days ago to support demands for a 75 percent wage increase retroactive to 1976-77. There are at present 25 strike-bound Israeli ships at ports in Israel and abroad. The daily loss due to the tie-up is an estimated IL 2.5M.
