Download PDF for this date

All Hebron notables testified today in the preliminary hearing regarding the committment for the Slonim house murders. The notables all tried to quash the case against Nasser Eddin and Issa Elarafi, two prominent citizens accused of participating in the massacre. Examining magistrate Miller agreed to discharge Eddin for good, but committed four others, including Elarafi, for premeditated murder.
