  • Description

    EIGHT PEOPLE WERE INJURED -- ONE OF THEM SERIOUSLY -- IN A HAND-GRENADE ATTACK ON A LORRY YESTERDAY (AUGUST 11) AT HEBRON IN ISRAELI-OCCUPIED TERRITORY ON THE WEST BANK OF JORDAN.

    THE WOUNDED WERE TAKEN TO HOSPITAL BY HELICOPTER AND POLICE CORDONED OFF THE AREA TO SEARCH FOR THE ATTACKERS.

    THE LARRY WAS CARRYING 35 PASSENGERS, FROM REHOVOT, CENTRAL ISRAEL, WHO WERE HEADING FOR JERUSALEM AFTER VISITING HEBRON. THE WOUNDED SIGHTSEERS TOLD SOLDIERS THAT THEY BELIEVED THE GRENADE WAS THROWN BY YOUTHS SEEN NEAR THE LORRY BEFORE THE ATTACK. STREET PATROLS WERE STEPPED UP AND ISRAELI SECURITY FORCES ROUNDED UP MORE THAN 40 SUSPECTS FOR QUESTIONING. THREE WEEKS AGO EIGHT CIVILIANS WERE INJURED IN A SIMILAR ATTACK AT HEBRON'S MARKET PLACE.
