In Lod, a Jewish man was killed by a stone-throwing mob, and synagogues, cars and stores were torched. In Haifa, Jewish vigilantes marched through the streets chanting “Death to the Arabs.” In Acre, a Jewish man was hospitalized in critical condition after an Arab mob clobbered him with an iron bar. In Jerusalem’s Mahaneh Yehuda market, an Arab man was stabbed by a Jewish gang.
