Tawi Attair, although also in the East Jebel Area, was one of the first settlements to have comprehensive aid. It’s natural well, loyal Firqa and a good centre for livestock created the foundation for civil aid. A clinic was built, school started, and in June 1975 the first livestock transportation to market by the army took place. The one shown here was January 1976.
Sporadic ‘adoo’ incidents were contained by SAS and local Firqa, with SAF/SOAF support throughout.
Trish visited many times, travelling by air and also by escorted military convoy.
