  • Description

    THE ISRAELI FLAG WAS FORMALLY RAISED OVER THE OLD CITY OF JERUSALEM TODAY (THURSDAY). IT WAS RAISED OVER THE HEADQUARTERS OF THE NEW MILITARY GOVERNOR OF THE CITY, GENERAL ALLOOF CHAIM HERRIG.

    THE ISRAEL HEADQUARTERS HAS BEEN SET UP IN THE AMBASSADOR HOTEL, ONE OF THE CITY'S MAIN HOTELS.

    EARLIER, THE OLD CITY HAD BEEN REPORTED QUIET AND NEARLY DESERTED AS PEOPLE REMAINED INDOORS UNTIL THE SITUATION BECAME MORE SETTLED. HOWEVER, AFTER THE FLAG-RAISING CEREMONY LIFE IN THE CITY RETURNED TO NEAR-NORMAL.

    THE BRITISH AMBASSADOR TO ISRAEL, MR. R.M. HADOW, LATER CALLED ON GENERAL HERRIG.

    MEANWHILE, AT RAMALLA, FORMERLY AN IMPORTANT JORDANIAN ADMINISTRATIVE CENTRE, ISRAELI TECHNICIANS HAVE TAKEN OVER THE LOCAL RADIO STATION, AND REGULAR NEWS BULLETINS IN ARABIC ARE BEING BROADCAST FROM IT.

    AT RAMALLA LARGE CROWDS OF BEDOUIN TRIBESPEOPLE HAVE CONGREGATED, WAITING FOR THE 'ALL CLEAR' TO BE GIVEN SO THEY CAN RETURN HOME OR ON THEIR NOMADIC WANDERINGS.

    THERE HAVE BEEN ISOLATED CASES OF PILFERING IN JERUSALEM AND RAMALLA, BUT A VISNEWS REPORTER IN THE AREA SAYS WIDESPREAD INSTANCES OF LOOTING HAVE BEEN PREVENTED BY WARNINGS OF SEVERE PENALTIES.
