Another anti-Jewish attack by Arabs occurred today in the vicinity of Haifa, resulting in the wounding of a Jewish girl, Helena Vitos.

Miss Vitos was walking with an acquaintance when an Arab boy, accompanied by two Arab adults, discharged a rifle. The police arrested three Arabs in connection with the case.

This is the third Arab attack on Jews in Palestine this week. The other attacks occurred in a village near the Jewish colony Nahalal and in the neighborhood of the Jewish colony Tel Mond. Five Jews were wounded in these two attacks, three of them seriously.
