Arabs from Lebanon Attack Arab Villages in Israel, Use Bombs

June 18, 1956
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Arab infiltrators from Lebanon last night attacked two more villages along the Israel-Lebanese border, it was announced here today. As in an attack last Thursday, Arab villages in Israel were the targets.

In last night’s attacks, khaki-clad raiders opened fire on a village in which one Israeli Arab was killed and nine others, including two women and six children, were injured in bomb blasts last Thursday. They also blew up a house in a nearby village. The gang which carried out last night’s raids, like the one responsible for the earlier outrage, seemed to be trained in sabotage work.
