  • Description

    IN SPITE OF RULING BY SOME AIRLINES THAT NO CARGO FOR ISRAEL WOULD BE HANDLED, SEVERAL CARGO FLIGHTS HAVE ARRIVED THERE... BUT UNDER STRICT SECURITY ARRANGEMENTS.

    TEL AVIV'S LYDDA AIRPORT IS OSTENSIBLY OPERATING NORMALLY, BUT STRINGENT SECURITY IS EVIDENT FOLLOWING THE RECENT GROWTH OF COMMANDO SABOTAGE IN AIRCRAFT BOUND FOR ISRAEL.

    IN SPITE OF MANY AIRLINES HAVING RULED THAT NO CARGO WOULD BE ACCEPTED FOR ISRAEL, SEVERAL FLIGHTS DID, IN FACT, ARRIVE YESTERDAY (TUESDAY) CARRYING PASSENGERS AND CARGO. AMONG THEM WERE FLIGHTS BY EL AL, AND B.O.A.C. WHICH CARRIED MAIL FROM INDIA.

    PERISHABLE GOODS NOT ACCEPTED BY SWISSAIR FOR SWITZERLAND WERE PUT INTO STORAGE, AND WERE DUE TO BE SHIPPED OUT BY LUFTHANSA LATER IN THE DAY.

    SOME OF THE VEGETABLE PRODUCE CAME FROM ARAB-OCCUPIED TERRITORIES. AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS ARE BEING SHIPPED DAILY TO EUROPE.

    ISRAEL POSTAL AUTHORITIES HAVE BEEN IN DIRECT TELEPHONE CONTACT WITH THE POSTAL AUTHORITIES OF A NUMBER OF EUROPEAN COUNTRIES TO INVESTIGATE THE CIRCUMSTANCES WHICH HAD ARISEN IN CONNECTION WITH MAIL SHIPMENTS TO ISRAEL. STEPS ARE BEING TAKEN TO RESTORE THE SERVICE TO NORMAL. UNDER THE INTERNATIONAL POSTAL TREATY TO WHICH BOTH ISRAEL AND THE EUROPEAN COUNTRIES ARE SIGNATORIES, EVERY MEMBER STATE OF THE U.P.U. BEARS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF FORWARDING DELAY ALL MAIL BEARING AN OVERSEAS ADDRESS.

    USUALLY ABOUT 2 TONS OF AIRMAIL ARRIVES DAILY AT TEL AVIV FROM EUROPE. YESTERDAY MORNING (MONDAY), NONE ARRIVED.
