Warn Arab Owners Not to Sell to Jews

Download PDF for this date

Warning letters have been received here by a number of Arab land workers, threatening them with death if they continue to sell land to Jews. The police authorities are investigating.

An official police communique issued to the press denies a report which appears in an Arab newspaper saying that 15,000 rounds of ammunition and thirty-six bombs have been discovered in a Jewish house in Jerusalem.

The communique says that the report in the Arab newspaper is grossly exaggerated. It discloses that the police confiscated in the house of a Jewish resident in Jerusalem one shotgun and 344 rounds of ammunition. Charges of illegal possession of arms are being preferred against the owner the communique states.
