“The shooting truce,” was which comparatively quiet this week-end was reamed late today. Shelling and sniping began again along the entire four-mile Jerusalem front.

Arabs dynamited one wall of the Jewish-held Notre Dame hospice which is the narrowest point of the U.N.-designated no-man’s-land. Arabs also shelled Jewish positions near the Ein Shemer airdrome.
