UNDER COVER MAIL From 1967 to 1990; from/to Arab Countries. After the 1967 Six Day War, correspondence between Palestinians in Territories and Arab Counties was suspended due to the postal boycott of Israel since 1948. The problem was partially resolved by using a third country. Another route became practical due to the “Open Bridge Policy” between Israel and Jordan. Tourists and others passing over the Allenby bridge carried the mails. Later Travel Agencies also carried mail, adding a charge for the service. Includes notes and listings. VOLUME #1 About 145.
