  • Description

    PRESIDENT NASSER GAVE A CEREMONIAL WELCOME TO A CONTINGENT OF EGYPTIAN TROOPS RETURNING HOME FROM FIGHTING IN THE YEMEN YESTERDAY (SUNDAY). THE TROOPS -- 1,500 OF THEM -- DISEMBARKED AT ALEXANDRIA'S NEW MARINE TERMINAL, WHERE THEIR COMMANDER WAS PRESENTED WITH THE KEYS OF THE CITY BY THE GOVERNOR OF ALEXANDRIA.

    ADDRESSING THE TROOPS, PRESIDENT NASSER SAID: "THE ENTIRE NATION THANKS YOU FOR WHAT YOU HAVE DONE." HE WENT ON TO SAY THERE COULD BE NO DISARMAMENT IN THE MIDDLE EAST UNTIL THE RIGHTS OF THE "PALESTINIAN PEOPLE" HAD BEEN RESTORED IN ISRAEL.

    EGYPT'S ARMED FORCES, HE ADDED, WERE GETTING READY TO "WASH OUT THE SHAME OF PALESTINE AND FACE ISRAEL AND THOSE WHO SUPPORT HER."
    (THE TROOPS ARE THE SECOND EGYPTIAN GROUP TO RETURN FROM THE YEMEN. A THIRD CONTINGENT IS EXPECTED SOON. UNITED ARAB FORCES NUMBERING 28,000 MEN HAVE BEEN IN THE YEMEN FOR THE MOST OF THE YEAR, SUPPORTING THE REVOLUTIONARY GOVERNMENT OF GENERAL AL SALLAL.)
