A Jewish self-defense unit for the purpose of preventing anti-Semitic riots during the forthcoming elections was created in the City of Maramoresh, reports received here state.

A delegation representing the Jewish community of Maramoresh appeared before the local Chief of Police and informed him of the forming of the unit.

When a group of anti-Semitic agitators arrived in the town of Vischeu and started to deliver inciting addresses, they were surrounded by a unit of the Jewish self-defense and compelled to leave the city.
