The first terrorist outbreak in Tel Aviv since the bombing of a train in July, 1936, occurred yesterday when a Arab speeding along Allenby road on a motorcycle tossed a mills bomb near the large rimon cinema, slightly injuring a 14-year-old Jewish boy, Arieh Blumenthal, and throwing crowds into panic. The terrorist escaped to Jaffa.

A terrorist-planted land mine blew up a military lorry on patrol duty between Tulkarem and Kaffin. A soldier driving the vehicle was seriously injured.

Arabs went on strike in Safed in protest against refusal of the police to deliver the corpses of two members of Arab bands, believed to be inhabitants of Safed, who were killed in an attack on a camp of Jewish workers building the barbed-wire barricade on the northern frontier.
