  • Description

    FOURTEEN ISRAELI YOUTHS WHO HAVE BEEN IN JORDAN SINCE THE MIDDLE EAST SIX-DAY WAR RETURNED YESTERDAY (TUESDAY) TO ISRAEL AFTER CROSSING THE ALLENBY BRIDGE BORDER POINT IN A JORDANIAN BUS. THE INTERNATIONAL RED CROSS LOCATED 28 YOUTHS, AGED 15-18, AFTER AMMAN RADIO HAD BROADCAST THEIR NAMES AND THE ISRAELI GOVERNMENT HAD GIVEN PERMISSION FOR THEIR RETURN.

    CONTRARY TO ISRAELI REGULATIONS, THE BUS, WHICH CARRIED JORDANIAN NUMBER PLATES, WAS ALLOWED TO CROSS THE BRIDGE INTO THE ISRAELI SIDE OF THE BORDER. THE YOUTHS THEN CHANGED BUSES, WENT THROUGH THE PASSPORT CONTROL OFFICE AND BOARDED ANOTHER BUS WHICH TOOK THEM TO THE GAZA STRIP.

    THE YOUTHS LOOKED WELL AND WERE ALL WELL DRESSED. TWO GIRLS WERE AMONG THE PARTY OF FOURTEEN.

    MEANWHILE, HUNDREDS OF ARAB SCHOOLCHILDREN THIS WEEK MARCHED THROUGH THE STREETS OF NABLUS ON THE ISRAELI-HELD WEST BANK OF THE JORDAN IN A DEMONSTRATION AGAINST THE ISRAELI OCCUPATION.

    THEY SHOUTED SLOGANS OF LOYALTY FOR PRESIDENT NASSER AND CARRIED BANNERS DENOUNCING THE ISRAELIS.
