January 13, 1953
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Thirteen members of Ein Harod, the settlement in which a fight between Mapai and Mapam settlers broke out this week-end, were today hailed into a magistrate’s court in Tiberias to answer charges of disturbing the peace.

Meanwhile, the district commissioner has warned all members of the colony, which was last year split physically along party lines, that further disorder would result in one year’s banishment from the settlement for anyone involved in an incident. The Histadrut executive is also considering the problems of the settlement and is attempting to adjudicate the row.
