December 7, 1947 Murder of Leading Member of the Haganah

Jerusalem Convoy 1948“A Jewish convoy was out from Tel-Aviv to Jerusalem. One of the passengers was Joshua Globerman, a leading member of the Haganah. On the road the convoy was halted by a British patrol and searched for arms. When the convoy proceeded on its way, Globerman was shot through the head by two Arabs who attacked his car with rifle fire. He was unarmed because of his urgent desire to reach Jerusalem on an important mission without risk of arrest.”
