Palestine Government Maintains Vigilance to Prevent Renewal of Sealed Armouries Agitation: Another a

The Arab paper “Al Carmel” of Haifa has been closed down by the Government for a fortnight, for publishing an article referring to the question of the sealed armouries provided by the Government in the isolated Jewish colonies.

This is in accordance with the official statement published by the Palestine Government on August 5th., in which it said that the agitation conducted against the policy of providing sealed armouries in the isolated Jewish colonies must cease, and that “after the publication of this statement any newspaper which publishes and any public speaker who utters statements which are calculated to foster the belief that the existence of these armouries is a menace to the law-abiding population of Palestine, will be regarded by the Government as deliberately and wantonly endangering the public safety, and will be dealt with accordingly”.
