The Hadassah Convoy
Alex Grobman at Israel National News has written a description of the massacre that occurred on Apr. 13, 1948, when a medical convoy was attacked by Arabs.
The attack, which lasted seven hours, began at 9:30 a.m. and took place less than 600 feet from the British military post. The British watched from the sidelines. Jewish appeals for help were ignored until mid-afternoon. But by then the Jews had either been burned alive in buses or shot. There were 28 survivors, only eight had no injuries.
