A new clash between Mapai and Mapam members of the Ein Harod settlement, which was recently split up physically along party lines, occurred yesterday.

In the clash, which appears to have developed over claims of ownership of a tool, two persons were injured seriously enough to require hospitalization, and two elderly men suffered heart attacks after the incident. The police eventually broke up the melee, in which even women and young girls participated.

The Jewish Agency settlement department announced today that it had established 11 new settlements in various parts of the country during the last three months.
