Israel Lodges Compl aint With Red Cross
Over Treatment of Prisoners by Egyptians

TEL AVIV (JTA)—Israel lodged
a complaint with the International

Red Cross Monday charging Egypt
with violation of the Geneva Con -
vention governing the treatment of
prisoners of war.
The Israel government charged
that two downed fighter pilots.
Maj. Nissim Ashkenazi and Capt.
Giora Romm, were subjected to in-
human treatment and physical as-
sault and were denied their nor-
mal rights as prisoners, including
visits by Red Cross representa-
tives within a reasonable period
of time.
The two pilots were repatriated
a week ago in a three-cornered ex-
change in which Israel returned
72 Egyptian and 13 Syrian prison-
ers of war for them and for two
Israeli civilians who were held
captive by Syria after TWA air-
liner was hijacked to Damascus
last Aug. 29.
Both flyers are in a military
hospital undergoing treatment for
severe injuries they suffered when
they bailed out over Egypt.
Israel complained that Egyptian
authorities refused to permit Red
Cross representatives to visit
either of them for 45-46 days after
they were taken prisoner. It was
further charged that Maj. Ashke-
nazi and Capt. Romm were kept
separately in solitary confinement
under inhuman conditions and
were transferred to a Cairo hos-
pital only one or two days before
Red Cross representatives were
finally allowed to visit them.

The Israelis rejected an

tian explanation that

Egyp-

the pilots
were held incommunicado be-
cause of their condition. They
were suffering from fractures of
hands and legs but were sub-
jected to constant interrogation
and were visited by an Egyptian
photographer who took pictures
for propaganda purposes, Israel

said.

Damaged Israel Freighter
Heads for Japan, Repairs

TEL AVIV (JTA) — The Israeli
freighter Dahlia. damaged by Arab
frogmen at Eilat three weeks ago,
has sailed from that port with
14.000 tons of phosphates and gen-
eral cargo bound for the Far East.
Damaged underwater plates were
temporarly repaired at Eilat. Per-
manent repairs will be made in
drydock when the vessel reaches
.Japan.

tians based on Jordanian territory,
also damaged the Israeli sight-
seeing boat Hey Daroma, which
carried tourists from Eilat to
Sharm el Sheikh. The vessel was
beached to prevent it from sinking.
and repairs were carried out local-
' ly.
