Palestine Again In Siege State • 4,0,00 Airborne British Troonr Swarm Streets JERUSALEM. Jan. 3. (UP>—Four thousand Red Devils of tile British Sixth Airborne Division swarmed through Palestinian streets and byways today in searcli of Jewish underground forces who loosed a new wave of violence with a score of widely scattered attacks. Closing ranks in the face' of renewed outbursts, the British Army ordered its men to carry arms at atll limes and never walk alohe Underground threats of mounting truculcnce. emphasized by the new attacks on military and "police positions, prompted the precautions. Authorities announced that one British officer ', was killed and 26 persons.'--aii]o,ng them--six military policemen, were wounded last night in the underground onslaught. The timing and .sriiclironimtion market! it as a planned campaign. With the coming of dawn alter a troubled night, the troops of (Jen Sir Evelyn Barker struck back. Strongly armed units of the Sixth Airborne Division raided a sprawling block of slum tenements in the outskirts of Tel Aviv Other squadrons of their comrades worked from tree- to tree through the orange groves along the road to Haifa. Rome 500 .Jews were taken to Army screening posts. At least, 1U were taken to the Lalroim detention camp. The search was like that at Rehcvot a day earlier, but, more intense. The Rehovot operation wax aimed at suspects in the Hogging of four British soldiers Sunday night. Today's quest was a direct answer to the attacks during the night, which were attributed to I lie Ir»un zvai Lrumi and Stern underground groups. A military truck hit a mine and turned over during the search. No casualties worn reported. Palestine's main cities had returned to at least, surface calm, but the streets were patrolled heavily by Jeeps nnd light armored cars. The Extremists were believed seeking to provoke the British troops into dra.stie retaliation. Tlin shootings, road mining and attacks with home-made, ilamc throwers which began at nightfall were described bv British military and police officials as "abortive" and "a failure." The attackers. operating in groups of varying size, were estimated to number at least 200. British troops and police confined themselves entirely to defensive measures, avoiding action which might be considered a counter-offensive." No curfew was imposed anywhere. British authorities s-ppcarcd to be awaiting the outcome of talks in London by Gen. Sir Alan Cunningham, high commissioner, for a definite policy toward the renewed outbreak. Larpc forces of troops nud police moved into Jerusalem. Tel Aviv and Haifa, the Holy Land's three largest cities. The largest night attack was made in Tel Aviv by approximately 40 Extremists who pumped gunfire into British army hcariqiiaflcrs In Citrus House from a rooftop about, ICO yards away.
