The Moslem riots which started eleven days ago against the Jewish population of Palestine and later assumed an anti-government character, have today also assumed an anti-Christian character. A report which reached here this morning from Beisan states that the local Greek Orthodox Christian community was attacked today by the Arab Moslem. Many were killed and injured. Details are still missing.

Mitzpah. near Tiberias, Galilee, was attacked, but the Jewish settlers repulsed the assailants.
