  • Description

    Police, soldiers and the Israeli frontier force re-enforced jerusalem on Friday (14 November) following a terrorist bomb which exploded in the city's centre the previous day.

    The bomb--believed to have been planted by Arab terrorists--- killed six young people and injured scores of other people, some critically.

    The increased security is partly a precaution against possible clashes between israelis and Arabs.

    The Minister of Police, Mr. S. Hill said, on Friday, the authorities hitherto had permitted free and almost unchecked entry into Jerusalem from all directions. He said this would have to be reconsidered in view of the wave of attacks.

    The new arrangement, he said, might inconvenience people, particularly from the Arab sector. It would not, however, change the character of Jerusalem as a single city.

    Frontier forces have been stopping all traffic, including buses, and searching all passengers. People are stopped and searched in spot checks.

    Thursday's bomb had been hidden in a cart planted near a restaurant in Jaffa Road, the city's most crowded street. It was only some 100 yards from Zion Square, where a booby-trapped refrigerator exploded in July this year, killing 15 people.

    An hour before the explosion, children discovered another bomb in the Mahane Yehuda market, another frequent terrorist target. It was removed and dismantled.

    The latest bomb attack took place on the eve of Israel's evacuation of the Ras Sudar area in the Sinai. Israel has ended its eight-and-a-half years' occupation of the area in the first of a series of withdrawals under the interim peace agreement concluded with Egypt in September.
