Israelis today continued to rebury soldiers killed in action in last June’s Six-Day War who were interred in temporary cemeteries near the fighting fronts. The remains of 83 officers and men of the ranks were brought to rest at the Tel Aviv military cemetery in the presence of more than 10,000 members of their families, friends and high ranking military personnel. Chief Army chaplain Shlomo Goren recited the burial services. An honor guard fired three salvoes.
