Tourism to Israel Rebounds

Tourism to Israel was up 5 percent last month over January 1989, but still short of the pre-intifada high.

A total of 90,000 tourists visited Israel in January 1990, 4 percent fewer than in January 1987, the start of a record year for tourism.

There were 1.5 million visitors in 1987. The Palestinian uprising began on Dec. 9 of that year.
