Tel Aviv, the first all-Jewish city of modern Palestine, was the center of an organized attack by the Moslem Arabs Sunday afternoon.

The Jewish youth of this city offered armed resistance and met the assailants, who came from Jaffa, on the outskirts of the Jewish city. A fierce battle ensued, which is still in progress. The local police, 100 per cent Jewish, led in the defense. The first check showed 1 killed, 8 wounded slightly, 5 gravely.
