Download PDF for this date

An area of the West Bank north of Nablus was placed under curfew last night following an attack on three army vehicles by marauders using automatic rifles and mortars, a military spokesman said today. No casualties were reported. The occupants of the vehicles halted directly after the attack and began a search which was later joined by security forces. It is believed that the marauders escaped into Jordan.

An Israeli armored police car struck a road mine in the Beisan Valley yesterday and suffered damage but no casualties, a military spokesman reported. The incident occurred south of Tirat Zvi. A second road mine was found in the vicinity and dismantled.
