Geva Newsreel 300, 1963

Israel and Syria Exchange Prisoners

  • Rate
Directed by: Unknown
Subtitles: English, Hebrew

Exchange of prisoners between Syria and Israel takes place at the Daughters of Jacob Bridge, mediated by UN observers. 18 Syrian civilians are exchanged for 11 Israeli citizens on the northern border. The footage material was delivered to Geva studios by a French television network since the Geva team was not invited to document the events. The 11 Israeli citizens who were imprisoned in Syria enter Israel, as Syrian civilians cross and enter Syrian territory. The Israeli civilians were captured by the Syrians between 1949-1956, and the three Sea of Galilee kidnapped citizens were abducted in July 1963, as their race boat was swept to the northern shore of the Sea of Galilee.
