Will Israel force a Palestinian Exodus?
The device was useless. The mortar-variant improvised by the Mikveh Israel agricultural school had been provided to the Palmach troops in Safed and Jerusalem; it became the ultimate proof that Jewish farmers couldn't be trusted. The odd device fired shrapnel enclosed within a grenade-like warhead; it was dreadfully inaccurate to the extent that it endangered the troops using it. After a few trials, the troops discovered an odd effect; despite its size the Davidka made as much noise as heavy artillery.
