See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

An all-male unit of the maritime section of Nahal, paramilitary pioneering youth organization, began settlement today of a new village on the Mediterranean coast of the Sinai Peninsula at a spot about midway between Egyptian-held Port Said and Israeli-held El Arish.

The new settlement is on the southwest end of the Sabkhet el Bardawil lagoon, a spot considered ideal for fishermen. The young settlers expect to develop this picturesque location into a fishing village.
