Download PDF for this date

Repudiation of the Arab grievance concerning the Dead Sea concession was made by Lord Lytton, chairman of the Dead Sea Company, writing in the London Times.

Nothing was attempted while Palestine belonged to the Turks. Arabs were not prevented from acquiring the Dead Sea wealth if they wanted to. Also, the terms of the concession secure them substantial participation in the profits, Lord Lytton declared.
