An area of the West Bank north of Nablus was placed under curfew last night following an attack on three army vehicles by marauders using automatic rifles and mortars, a military spokesman said today. No casualties were reported. The occupants of the vehicles halted directly after the attack and began a search which was later joined by security forces. It is believed that the marauders escaped into Jordan.

An Israeli armored police car struck a road mine in the Beisan Valley yesterday and suffered damage but no casualties, a military spokesman reported. The incident occurred south of Tirat Zvi. A second road mine was found in the vicinity and dismantled.
