Three Jews were killed today and two were wounded when an Arab band raided a party of six Jewish workers, guarded by two Jewish auxiliary policemen, who were boring a Governmental experimental well near the Arab village of Ein Feshka, four miles from the Palestine Potash Company’s dead sea plant in southern Palestine.

The dead are workers Haim Yosilewitz, 32, of Poland, and Abraham Zelikowitz, 28, of Lithuania, and Policeman Abraham Avdizedek, 30, a Sephardic Jew, who died of his wounds. The other policemen, Shlomo Shvili, 28, was seriously wounded, and a worker, Shlomo Itzhaki, was slightly injured.

A bomb thrown into a house in Tiberias slightly injured an aged Jewish woman, her daughter and granddaughter. Thirteen houses in the Arab village of Bakaa, near where Sergeant-Major Beauchamps of the Royal Scots regiment had been killed, were dynamited.
