Palestine’s Governor Protects Arabs in Honduras

Honduras, the Central American republic, where a United States arbitrator is now engaged in adjusting the revolutionary differences which have been disturbing the peace of that country, will be asked by Great Britain to grant compensation for the loss of life and property sustained by a number of Palestinian Arabs, who were residents of Honduras during the course of the recent military disorders, according to a statement of Ronard Storrs, Goveron of Jerusalem.

As a result of representations made by the Executive Committee of the Palestinian Arabs to the Palestine Government, on behalf of the Arab victims in Honduras, Governor Storrs informed the President of the Executive, Musa Kazim Pasha, that the Palestine Government would, through the medium of the British Colonial and Foreign Office, intervene diplomatically with the Honduras Government concerning the matter of compensation.
