Download PDF for this date

Uncensored reports reaching here from Jerusalem describe the situation at the close of the fourth day of the Arab Jewish warfare as extremely grave notwithstanding the presence of a larger number of British troops and marines in the country.

Direct reports coming from the lead here to say that the attacks spread a serious charge against those in command in Palestine.

Isaac Ben-Zvi, Jewish labor leader, at 9 p. m. Monday evening telephoned here to say that the attacks spread Monday all over the country, in the north and in the south, in the Valley of Jezreel and in Haifa, in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. Many are reported killed and wounded in all places.

“Many from among us have been killed. Our arms have been taken away by the authorities but not from the Arabs,” Mr. Ben-Zvi stated.

“The riots continued in Haifa,” he added.
