May 30, 1948 Almost Daily Air Bombardment in Israel

Jordanian Artillery Shelling Jerusalem 1948“Israel, is under almost daily air bombardment but life continues in a normal way except at night when it is difficult to get around in the complete blackout.  There is hardly a whisper on the streets after sundown, but in the cafes, coffee houses and hotels people stifle behind blackout curtains closed doors and windows.”
