Download PDF for this date

Thirteen Jews were injured, three of them seriously, today when several hundred Arabs clashed with settlers at Kfar Masaryk and Emek Zebulun, near Haifa, over ownership of a disputed piece of land. Two Arabs were also injured. Seven of the Jews were hospitalized.

A government announcement tonight said that the trouble started when Jewish contractors began to plow a section of land claimed by both the Arabs and Jews. No arrests have been made, the statement added.
