(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

No damage was caused in Palestine by the earthquake which Palestine experienced last Saturday in connection with the disturbance of this nature, which covered a wide range on the Mediterranean.

The meteorological officials in Tel Aviv reported that Palestine went through five shocks, lasting one second. The fifth shock was sufficiently strong to move furniture and rattle window panes. No serious harm, however, resulted.

Much stronger shocks were felt in Egypt, where the population was thrown into a panic by the earthquake.
