Ashqelon in "Next Year in Jerusalem"[]

Ashqelon, Palestine was the home of Chaim Perelman, community leader of the Jews of Palestine. Second Irgun members Yakov and Miriam committed two terrorist acts in Ashqelon: the murder of fellow Irgun member Benjamin and the assassination of Perelman. Much to the disgust of Yakov and Miriam, the Jewish population openly mourned Perelman's death.
