May 29th - The Terrorist Attack on Lod Airport

Last year, we published on the Archives site, in our 'Electronic Publications' section, 3 documents concerning the Lod Massacre, in which 24 people were murdered by 3 Japanese terrorists, members of the Japanese "Red Army" and operating under the orders of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. The documents include a telegram of sympathy sent by King Hussein of Jordan to Prime Minister Golda Meir, Golda Meir's reply to Hussein and a debate by the government on whether to demand the death penalty for the captured terrorist.
