Two small groups of uniformed Jews late yesterday invaded two military camps and escaped with a quantity of arms.

Six Jews attacked a convalescent camp near Nathanya, and after looking up the guards, escaped with five tommy guns, five rifles and a revolver. A short time afterwards, fifteen Jews raided a nearby camp, but obtained only one rifle. No casualties have been reported.

A Jew found with a hand grenade in his possession near the spot where a military truck was blown up by a mine yesterday was arrested.

There were several loud explosions here last night when pamphlet bombs exploded, scattering leaflets in the center of the city.
