The first British losses in the fighting to quell the Arabs in Palestine occurred at Gaza, according to a report of the Central News Agency.

British troops fought hordes of mounted Bedouins who were trying to invade Palestine from the Sinai peninsula, the report states. Both sides suffered heavily in the fighting between the troops and the Arabs. The Arabs also made progress in the neighborhood of Beersheba. Both places were the scene of fierce battles during Allenby’s campaign during the World War.

The attempted invasion of Bedouins from the Sinai peninsula is a new, serious development, the Agency reports.
