  • Description

    Abdul Azzis Zuabi, on Wednesday(30 June), became the first Arab ever appointed to the rank of Deputy Minister in the Israeli government. Active in public life for twenty years, 45-year-old Mr. Zuabi was named Deputy Minister of Health. Under Victor Shem-Tov, Minister of Health, Mr. Zuabi will be working at the Health Ministry in Jerusalem.

    The only other Arab to reach a similar standing in Israeli public life is the Deputy Speaker of the House, Zeif Eldin Alzuabi, a cousin of Mr. Zuabi.

    Following a briefing from the Minister of Health on Thursday, Mr. Zuabi toured the nearby Central Laboratories, where preparations are being completed to meet any cholera threat -- should the virus again be imported from abroad.
