After the terror attack in Jerusalem, in which the British Officers Club (Goldschmidt House) was bombed, the British army arrests suspects. A television crew documents British soldiers located outside the Jewish National Fund building, located in proximity to the bombed site, as soldiers set into firing positions in a field outside the building. Soldiers interrogate a suspect, and several suspects are then led outside the building. Afterwards the ruins of the British Officers club on King George Street are seen where the explosion took place, as British soldiers clear the rubble.
