Palestine Continues Its Protest Against Project to Change Port Site

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The possibility that the Palestine harbor will be built in Port Fuad on the Egyptian coast and not in Haifa is still holding the attention of Palestine public opinion.

It was learned that the project to build the port in Port Fuad instead of Haifa was initiated by the manager of the Palestine railways, in his hope that the construction of the port at Port Fuad would increase the movement of passengers and goods on the Palestine railways. Other governmental departments are not supporting this project, which has aroused great excitement in the press and business circles which are vigorously protesting against such a change of plan.
