One Israeli was killed and three others wounded in three attacks last night on Israeli vehicles by armed marauders near Elath close to the Jordan border, an army spokesman announced today.

The attacks were made on vehicles carrying workers in the Elath region. The first car was hit but no one was wounded. An hour later, a second car passing the same point was fired on and the killing occurred. Those wounded in the third attack were traveling in a jeep.
