On October 13, 1947, a bomb exploded in the compound of the United States consulate in Jerusalem. Two employees were cut by pieces of flying glass from broken windows. The Consul-General’s dining room was also damaged. This was the third consulate bombing blamed on the Arab underground organization, Jihad. The attack was believed to be a reprisal for the United States announcement of its support for the UN partition plan.
