Iraqi postal boycott of Israel: 6 JUN 1949 airmail cover on business stationary from NEW YORK to REHOVOT, franked 25c per period air mail rate & tied by local machine cancel; mis-routed via IRAQ where backstamped 11 JUN 49 BAGHDAD arrival + manuscript marked on front "No Postal Communication w Palestine Returned to Sender" & returned. This is the earliest known example of Israel-bound mail received in Iraq: very rare as Iraq has had no postal relations with Israel since 1948 & so few articles have ever been mis-routed there (no Iraqi instructional marking handstamp exists as erroniously-routed mail volume is negligible). Some staple holes & vertical folds. Rare instance of mail misrouted via Arab countries not in the immediate proximity to Israel - only 2 such known routed via Iraq. Of note: the vertically aligned 6-digit printed number on lower-left front of cover may be a censor mark, a more advanced version of a similar type (Type-8A2) used in BEIRUT during WWII, and as Israeli War of Independence just ended (March 1949), this may be a carry-over. If confirmed, an interesting clue as to this cover's mis-routing.

Lebanese postal boycott of Israel: 10 OCT 1952 registered commercial airmail cover on business stationary from HONG KONG to SDE NEHEMIA (via AFULA post), franked $1.30 & tied by 2 strikes of local REG postmark; misrouted via LEBANON (backstamped 23 X 52 BEYROUTH arrival), where French manuscript-marked "Retour | Pas de relation postal avec Israel" - this rare as less than 10 "no service" manuscript-marked covers known from Lebanon; returned to sender via Jordan (per censor cachet on front) to Egypt (backstamped 31 OCT 52 CAIRO DELEVERY(sic)). This only known HONG KONG originating Lebanese-"no service" mail to Israel. Here, possibly resent & delivered to Israel: note purple mark over BEIRUT backstamp - similar to period Israeli censor mark, possible as pre-dates 1954-56 "Delayed Mail" Israeli instructional mark, although unusual as cover not backstamped by Israeli arrival, as this is a registered letter.

Egyptian "No Service" mail sent to Israel: 23-7-1956 airmail cover from ALEXANDRIA to SOUTH AMBLTON (UK) whose sender & addressee details erroniously placed on envelope's front; franked 52m & dispatched from ALEXANDRIA, but as sender's name "Esmaiel" & appears in addressee field, the Egyptian post office treated it as "Israel", censored it (K-Type-7, #80) & marked "no relaciones" + "retour" (red manuscript), indicating address in return address field (the intended address); cover dispatched to UK where sender's name again misunderstood as "Israel" & erroniously re-routed to there, and not delivered locally as intended; backstamped 17-8-56 TEL AVIV arrival. Unusually not censored in Israel. A rare instance of Egyptian mail reaching Israel; only one known Egyptian-UK-Israel cover.
