Arab is Slain, Police Repulse Attack on Land

Download PDF for this date

One Arab was killed by police gunfire and three police injured by stones when Arabs and police clashed at Horathiya today, over an attempt by Bedouins to prevent the reoccupation of land owned by the Jewish National Fund.

Ownership of the land had been questioned by Bedouins who had been grazing their flocks there. The courts decided in favor of the National Fund.

Incensed at the decision of the court, the Moslems tried to prevent the police from taking possession of the land. Three policemen were injured by a volley of stones thrown by the Arabs. After warning the Bedouins, the police fired. The Bedouins fled from the scene.
