  • Description

    Nearly twenty people were injured in Jerusalem on Tuesday (December 4) in the first terrorist blast in the city for several months. The injured were in a crowded alley in the old city near the Jaffa Gate when a grenade was hurled among them.

    The casualties -- only two of whom were seriously injured -- included four Arabs, two Rumanian tourists and five Israeli girl soldiers. The seriously injured were a six-year-old Arab boy and one of the girl soldiers.

    Police detained fifty-two people, including a number of Arab shop-keepers, for questioning and a senior officer said Arab guerrillas were thought to be responsible for the attack. King David Street, where the attack took place, is in part of Jerusalem captured from Jordan in the 1967 war and is included in the area which the Arabs say must be handed back in any Middle East peace settlement.

    Another blast on the following day injured fifteen people travelling on a bus near Nethanya on the Mediterranean Coast, 15 miles (25 Kilometres) north of Tel Aviv.
