Israel-morocco Phone Link Launched

Download PDF for this date

A direct-dialing telephone link between Israel and Morocco was inaugurated Thursday with a telephone conversation between Minister-Without-Portfolio Raphael Edri in Tel Aviv and Robert Asseraf, a leader of the Moroccan Jewish community.

The phone link between Israel and countries that have no direct phone communications with Israel was established two years ago by the Tel Aviv-based Solan Communications firm through a communications center it established in London.

The system enables Israel to have phone links with Syria, Tunisia, Iran, Iraq and now Morocco.
