Download PDF for this date

The Irgun Zvai Leumi, outlawed Jewish terrorist organization, posted placards throughout the city during the night assuming responsibility for the bombing of Jerusalem district police headquarters on Friday, in which one Policeman was killed and several seriously injured.

The posters charged that the police were torturing captured terrorists and said that the bombings and other terroristic activities will continue until the Palestine Government surrenders control of immigration to the Jews.

Police headquarters in Jerusalem announced today that many arrests have been made in connection with Friday’s bombing, but the announcement did not give any farther details.
