Six Recent Immigrants Killed in Israel when They Attempt to Dismantle Landmine

Download PDF for this date

Six recent immigrants to Israel were yesterday killed by a landmine near Petach Tikvah when they attempted to dismantle the bomb.

The immigrants had left a reception camp at Petach Tikvah a short time before the tragic accident. They apparently mistook the camouflaged mine for a field stove.
