The Jewish settlement of Moledet in the vicinity of Beisan established two years ago, was completely destroyed today by an accidental explosion of a cooking stove. The wooden huts and stockade were destroyed quickly and portions of the fields were damaged. The settlers were given temporary shelter at the Ain Charod and Geva colonies.
