Arab Terrorists Continue to Penetrate into Israel; Sabotage Repaoted

El Fatah Arab infiltrators set off a charge of explosives last night in a house occupied by a new immigrant family in Givat Yeshayahu in the Adulam area, some five miles from the Jordanian frontier. The house was badly damaged, but the 53-year-old owner and his wife, who were asleep at the time of the explosion, were not injured.

Another attempt at sabotage, believed to have been planned by members of the El Fatah terrorist group, was discovered this morning by an army patrol examining the tracks of the railroad from Haifa to Jerusalem. Just before a Haifa-Jerusalem train was to pass the point, the army men found a bundle of explosives under the tracks. Large loss of life could have resulted if the discovery had not been made in time.
