An attack on the police barracks at Hittin, eight miles west of Tiberias during Sunday night was successfully repulsed. Slight hand to hand fighting took place at Yesod Hamallah north of Lake Tiberias. Some arrests were made without casualties to the British troops. The general attitude of the Transjordan tribes is stated to be satisfactory with the exception of small areas in the north.”
