Arab Band Tortures, Murders Aged Jew

Download PDF for this date

A band of Arabs today tortured and murdered a sixty-five-year-old Jew, Jeshaia Tuassi. The victim’s corpse was thrown by the murderers into a river, where it was later found.

Several suspects were arrested, but they were later released for lack of sufficient evidence against them. The Jews of Alleppo are very much alarmed over the incident.
