Asks Compulsory Sale of Part of J.N.F. Land for Iraq Petroleum Pipe Lines

Full compensation will be paid to the Jewish National Fund and to Jewish settlers whose property will be affected by the pipe line being laid by the Iraq Petroleum Company, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency was informed today.

The negotiations with the Jewish National Fund regarding this transaction which involves a considerable area have been in progress for a considerable time. An expropriation ordinance had to be applied in order to make the transaction possible inasmuch as the Jewish National Fund could not otherwise sell the land which is purchased as the inalienable property of the Jewish people.
