Tel Aviv Mayor Israel Rokach and Ramat Gan Mayor Avraham Krinitzi are released from Latrun detention camp after 38 days. Israel Rokach is seen next to his family and Avraham Krinitzi, having their photo taken for the press after their release. The mayors were arrested on charges of assisting various underground organizations active at the time, alongside other Yishuv leaders, and their arrest was the result of the growing tension between the British Mandate authorities and Yishuv leaders.
