  • Description

    ONE ISRAELI CIVILIAN WAS KILLED AND THREE OTHERS WERE WOUNDED YESTERDAY (28 APRIL) WHEN A BUS HIT AN EXPLOSIVE CHARGE AT TZEMACH, NEAR LAKE TIBERIAS, A MILITARY SPOKESMAN REVEALED. OTHER PASSENGERS IN THE BUS WERE SLIGHTLY HURT BY THE BLAST.

    THE BUS WAS CARRYING WORKERS FROM THE TZEMACH AREA TO EL HAMMA WHICH IS IN THE SOUTH CORNER OF THE GOLAN HEIGHTS. IT IS NOW ISRAELI HELD BUT WAS FORMALLY NO-MANS-LAND AND WAS OCCUPIED BY THE SYRIANS IN 1951.

    RECENTLY THIS AREA HAS BEEN UNDER FIRE FROM NEIGHBOURING JORDAN, MAINLY BECAUSE OF THE ISRAELI MILITARY BASES ON THE YARMUK RIVER.

    THE WORKERS CAME EACH DAY FROM TIBERIAS TO COMPLETE THE NEW ROAD TO EL HAMMA.

    ON THE SAME DAY THREE ISRAELI SOLDIERS WERE KILLED WHEN THE VEHICLE IN WHICH THEY WERE TRAVELLING ON THE EASTERN BANK OF THE SUEZ CANAL HIT A MINE.
