Satisfaction with the peaceful situation in Palestine was expressed by the Permanent Mandates Commission of the League of Nations following its examination of the report of the Palestine government and the explanations of Colonel George S. Symes, civil secretary of the Palestine Government.

The report, as well as the explanations of Col. Symes made a good impression upon the mandates commission. Particular satisfaction was expressed in the fact that the military forces in Palestine have been reduced.
