  • Description

    Streets of El Arish (the main square is blazoned w Egyptian flag but back streets show a more modest number) Egyptian pre-handover education Director Hassan Ali to camera. Neot-Sinaj Laundry, which has been one of the contentious points: built by Isr. w/ govt. help, it is the largest non-govt. Employer, not only doing the washing for all military in the Sinai but Geta washing all the way from tel Aviv. If Egypt should prevent El Arish workers from continuing, the laundry would probably have to shut -- no substitute labour in the region.

    Phone and electric lines being installed by Isr. linemen that will connect El Arish with Cairo by Friday (25.5).

    Irs. army trucks continue to move out installations.

    Isr. and Egyptian soldiers fraternise during a work break. Tank on carrier moving north.

    Failure to reach agreement on political issues (see cutting) did not slow preparations for the handover. In the town, the festive air had died down. People guardedly expressed concern about future.
