Download PDF for this date

For the second time in less than a week, Syrian gun positions on the eastern shore of the Sea of Galilee opened fire today on Israeli fishermen hauling in their nets.

Israeli police boats, which escort the fishermen on their trips to the fishing grounds, returned the fire. There were no casualties among the Israelis.
