Operation ‘Lot’: IDF forces are successful in securing a land link with Sodom. Aerial reconnaissance in preparation for the operation had been carried out by the ‘Negev’ Squadron’s light planes. Following Operation ‘Lot’, IAF Norseman and Dakota transports carry out an almost-daily airlift of vital supplies to Sodom. The road which has been opened to Sodom is a very treacherous one, especially for supply vehicles; IAF transports therefore continue the supply flights to Sodom until the war’s end.
