PLO Cargo Rejected

Download PDF for this date

Three cargo containers filled with food and medical supplies were returned to their countries of origin–Greece and Cyprus — Tuesday because they were consigned to “PLO — Gaza.”

Transport Minister Haim Corfu ordered the containers sent back after they were off-loaded from a ship at the port of Ashdod. The cargoes originated in Iraq, Egypt and the Soviet Union. The forwarder was an Iraqi company.
