Five Terrorists Get Life Terms

A military tribunal in Gaza pronounced life sentences last night on five Arab terrorists convicted of murdering 11 Arabs and causing the deaths of two others. The defendants were also charged with throwing hand grenades that wounded 16 Arabs and with illegal possession of arms. Four other Arabs of the same group had their trial postponed. One of them is accused of throwing a grenade at the car of Defense Minister Moshe Dayan in Gaza in 1969.
