Download PDF for this date

Four members of an armed Arab gang which infiltrated Israeli territory from the Samaria area were killed this afternoon in the vicinity of Hedera by Israeli police.

The four were killed when the Israeli police, having pursued them to a cave hideout, returned their heavy fire. It is believed the gang, of whom many were wounded in the exchange of fire, were responsible for a number of murders and robberies which recently took place in the Samaria area.
