Palestine Frontier is Defined in New Treaty with Transjordania

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The line defining the frontier between Palestine and Transjordania is described in the new agreement between Great Britain and Transjordania published here today as a White Paper.

In the agreement the Palestine area is defined as that portion of the mandated area lying west of a line drawn from a point two miles west of Akaba, through the center of Wady Araba, the Dead Sea, the Jordan to its junction with the River Yarmuk, thence through the center of Yarmuk to the Syrian frontier.
