Download PDF for this date

Terrorist incidents near Tel Aviv and in Jerusalem and a riot at a refugee camp in Jenin on the West Bank were under investigation by security authorities today. Three passengers were injured when a bomb exploded this morning on a bus south of Tel Aviv. Police said the bomb was concealed in a nylon bag left behind by a passenger.

That incident followed an explosion of a Katyusha rocket in the Abu-Tor quarter of Jerusalem. The blast left a large crater but caused no casualties or damage. Police are combing the area for the perpetrators.

Meanwhile, a Jenin military tribunal imposed fines on scores of youngsters who rioted earlier in the day at the Jenin refugee camp. Police said the disturbances began when youths stoned security forces, erected road blocks and set fire to tires. In one case, a Molotov cocktail was thrown at Israeli soldiers. No casualties were reported. A curfew has been imposed on the camp.
