Download PDF for this date

The Egyptian Government has prohibited a meeting which was called for to-night by Hebron Arabs residing here who fled to Egypt from Hebron after the massacres there in 1929. The meeting was to have been in commemoration of the three Palestine Arabs who were executed at Acre Prison last year for the murder of Jews during the massacres. Two of the three executed Arabs belonged to Hebron.
