France delivered parts for 25 Fouga Magister training aircraft to Israel this month for assembly at Israeli plants, it was learned here today. But official circles insisted that the deliveries can in no way be regarded as presaging the end of France’s embargo on 50 Mirage V supersonic jet fighters that Israel ordered two years ago and paid for in full last April. Observers here linked the aircraft parts delivery to an attempt by the de Gaulle regime to mollify Jewish voters during the current election period.
