  • Description

    DESPITE THE RECENT INCIDENT OF THE FRENCH GUNBOATS -- SPIRITED TO ISRAEL IN DEFIANCE OF THE MIDDLE EAST ARMS EMBARGO -- FRENCH SHIPMENTS MARKED FOR ISRAELI DESTINATIONS ARE CONTINUING TO FLOW INTO THE MEDITERRANIAN PORT OF MARSEILLES.

    GOODS WAITING SHIPMENT FROM MARSEILLES AIRPORT INCLUDE CASES OF MATERIAL FROM THE FRENCH AERONAUTICS FIRM OF SUD-A???TION -- CASES RELIABLY BELIEVED TO CONTAIN PARTS FOR THE FRENCH ALOUETTE HELICOPTERS OPERATED BY THE ISRAELIS.

    ALTHOUGH FRANCE DEMANDED THAT ISRAEL'S CHIEF EUROPEAN ARMS BUYER, ADMIRAL MORDECHAI LIMON, SHOULD BE CALLED HOME AFTER THE GUNBOATS INCIDENT, THERE HAVE BEEN RUMOURS THAT FRANCE IS REVIEWING THE MIDDLE EAST ARMS EMBARGO IMPOSED UNDER GENERAL DE GAULLE.

    ONLY LAST WEEK, THE FRENCH GOVERNMENT STATED EMPHATICALLY THAT THE EMBARGO ON ARMS TO ISRAEL, EGYPT, JORDAN AND SYRIA WOULD STAY IN FORCE. BUT THE SUBSEQUENT SALE OF 50 FRENCH MIRAGE JETS TO LIBYA IMMEDIATELY AROUSED SPECULATION IN ISRAEL THAT THE AIRCRAFT MIGHT EVENTUALLY FIND THEIR WAY TO EGYPT.
