International Modernistic Tel Aviv, Home of 200,000 Jews, Is Laid Out in Avenues and Circles Like Paris and Washington, D.C. Last July 30 this all-Jewish city was surrounded and all its communications silenced. As launches patrolled the harbor, 20,000 troops began ahouse-to-house search, questioning every adult. In hospitals, plaster casts were X-rayed to determine if suspects were faking injuries. During thefour-day siege ammunition caches and suspected terrorists were seized. Zina Dizengoff Place (circle) is named for the wife of Tel Aviv's founder and first Mayor (pages 501 and 503).
