Irgun “leafiet Bombs” Warn Police to Stay Away from Wailing Wall on Yom Kippur

Five “leaflet bombs” exploded last night in the Jewish quarter, seriously injuring two persons, including a nine-year-old boy, and causing slight injuries to seven others.

The leaflets contained a message from the Irgun Zvai Leumi, Jewish terrorist organization, warning the British police not to approach the Wailing Wall on Yom Kippur.

The blowing of the shofar at the Wailin Wall is forbidden, and attempts to do so in past years have led to arrests and, on occasion, serious disturbances.
