Officials Deny British Hurt in Battle of Arab Tribesmen

Download PDF for this date

Official circles have termed as absolutely without foundation the reports appearing in the Arab press to the effect that a battle between Wahabi and Transjordanian tribesmen had resulted in a number of British casualities.

Military officials are reticent concerning an automobile accident involving British troops on the Nablus road. They say no one was seriously hurt. A number of members of Brith Trumpeldor, a Jewish youth organization, returning from a Trumpeldor pilgramage to Tel Hai, rushed the injured soldiers to Nablus.
