Advices from Spanish Morocco today stated that Jewish residents there are in an extremely dangerous situation since the rebels are definitely anti-Semitic.

The anti-Government forces were reported to have arrested and imprisoned in concentration camps the entire Jewish community of Mellila.

A radio broadcast from Seville, which is under rebel domination, stated that “international Jewry is definitely siding with the Government.” Many Jewish stores in the city have been requisitioned.
