Two downed Israeli fighter pilots who were released from prison in Egypt three weeks ago, were discharged from a military hospital here today. Maj. Nissim Ashkenazi and Capt. Giora Romm, were injured when they bailed out over Egyptian territory after their jets were hit by anti-aircraft fire. For nearly three months they were held incommunicado in an Egyptian prison.
