Fourteen of the fifteen Arabs convicted of participation in the October riots in Jaffa today posted bond that they would observe the peace and were freed on probation. The Jerusalem district court, acting as an appellate body, placed them on conditional three-year probation.

The fifteenth, Muza Faar, member of the Arab Executive and leader of the extreme nationalist wing, failed to post bond.
