November 26, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A fifteen year old Jewish girl of Kinereth took the law into her own hands when she shot and killed her Arab assailant just as the court in Tiberias sentenced him to fifteen years hard labor.

The crime took place some months ago near Kinereth. The girl was in court during her assailant’s trial and hearing the verdict she whipped out a revolver and shot the prisoner. She has been taken into custody.
