Download PDF for this date

A 24-hour curfew was clamped down on the Herzlia colony today following a serious clash between members of the Histadruth and Revisionists at camp Betar in which one person was killed and 19 wounded. It was the second curfew since Friday.

The Revisionists charged that the Histadruth members attacked the camp. Their opponents claimed that the Revisionists attacked a bus on Friday. The fatality was Eliahu Shlomi, 22, a native of Wilno whose former name was Daiches.
