Download PDF for this date

Two powerful bombs exploded last night outside Jewish-owned shops in the center of the city, causing severe damage but no casualties. A third bomb found outside the El Al office in Rome was defused by sappers before it detonated. Police sources said leaflets found at the site of the bombinas indicated that they were the work of Palestinian organizations in retaliation for “Israeli violence on the West Bank.”
