4 Arabs Killed in Clash

Download PDF for this date

Police killed four terrorists and captured a number of others today in a clash with an arab band near the village of Yehudia, in the vicinity of Petach Tikvah. The police suffered no casualties. The driver of a Jewish-owned truck was wounded last night when it struck a land mine between Tulkarem and Nathania. A Jewish policeman in tel Aviv was wounded by a bomb thrown from the Jaffa boundary area.

Jaffa was dark last night as result of an Arab boycott, enforced by terrorist bands, against “Jewish” electricity. The city gets its electric power from the Rutenberg Electric Company.

Curfew from ten p.m. to five a.m. was imposed on Haifa.
