December 3, 1959
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Two infiltrators from the Gaza Strip were killed today by an Israel army patrol, the Israel Army spokesman announced today. The patrol intercepted a group of three Arabs who refused to halt and opened fire instead. The third Arab fled across the border. Two members of the patrol were wounded and treated in a nearby hospital.

(The United Arab Republic was blamed by United Nations officials today for the killing last Saturday of a Canadian United Nations Emergency Force soldier, Ronald Allen of Halifax, Nova Scotia. He died from wounds he suffered when his jeep was fired on during a routine patrol of the Sinai border.)
