Three underground Hebrew broadsides issued by the Haganah Organization. Haifa District, [1948].
1. "HaChomah, matters of security and defense", a broadside calling the Jews of Haifa not "to disturb the protectors while they are doing their duty by gathering, obstructing traffic and spreading frightening rumors" and not to leave their houses without an authorized order.
2. "HaChomah, matters of security and defense", a broadside with updates on the course of the battles after the British had left Haifa – the progress of the forces, gaining control of key positions, transport routes and action bases, the attack on Tira, and more.
