Download PDF for this date

Another threshing floor on Jewish land in the Wady Havarit area was set on fire on Friday by unknown incendiaries. (The first, in which the entire season’s crop of the Jewish colony of Nathania was destroyed, was reported in the J.T.A. Bulletin of the 8th. inst.).

Two Bedouin encampments adjoining the threshing floor have suffered no damage at all from the fire, it is being commented.
