Yadjur Shooting Outrage in Palestine Claims Another Victim: Jewish Girl Who Was Injured in Attack So

The Yadjur shooting outrage, which occurred on the Haifa Road last April, when a group of Jewish labourers returning to the Yadjur Labour settlement from the Nesher Cement Factory were ambushed by a band of Arabs, has to-day claimed another victim in Breina Halperin, one of the girls in the party, who was injured at the time. She had only just come to Palestine from Poland in order to be married, when the outrage occurred, and she never recovered from the shock. She was continually since then suffering from a fit of melancholy, and this morning she threw herself under a train. The funeral took place at Haifa this afternoon. She had been married only a fortnight ago.

Three of the members of the Party, Hinda Fishman, Samuel Dishnel and Jacob Zamil, were killed outright in the attack. Although about seven months have elapsed, the police have not yet been able to trace the murderers.
