Town of Gaza Curfewed Following Increased Sabotage; Houses Blown Up in Nablus

Israeli authorities today evacuated and sealed off two houses in Nablus whose owners are suspected of having thrown hand grenades at the military governor’s office. Israel Army sappers demolished two other Nablus buildings belonging to suspected saboteurs yesterday. But they decided to seal off the remaining two because their destruction would imperil adjacent buildings.

A night curfew was imposed on Gaza township in the Gaza Strip as a result of increased sabotage in the region. The curfew, in effect from seven p.m. to five a.m. does not include the refugee camps nearby.
