Israel Price Index Up 1.6 Percent

Israeli officials are concerned about the 1.6 percent rise in the cost-of-living index in November, which the Central Bureau of Statistics announced Tuesday.

The rise is six-tenths of a percent higher than forecast and brings the inflation rate for the first 11 months of the year to 14.7 percent.

The rate for all of 1987 is expected to hit 16 percent when the December figures are released on Jan. 15.
