Jerusalem (Jul. 29)
An agreement between the Ica and the Arabs in the neighborhood of Kabara has been concluded for the purpose of enabling the drainage work in that region to be carried on.
The Ica, which has a concession to drain the swamp lands in the neighborhood of Kabara, has been prevented until now from carrying on its work by the Arabs. The Arabs have now been conciliated by awarding them compensation, including a part of the Kabara land, a plot west of Tantura and some money.
Two hundred workers will be occupied upon the resumption of work.
