Download PDF for this date

Damages estimated at $40,000 were sustained by the Jewish colony of Migdal in an Arab attack that destroyed six acres of fruit trees and a water-pumping station, leaving the colony temporarily without water. Special policemen frustrated an attempt to set fire to crops of the Tirath Zvi colony. A British constable was slightly injured in an Arab attack on a police patrol near Nazareth.

Two soldiers were wounded, one of them fatally, when an Arab band attacked a body of troops and police which had uncovered a cache of arms at Tamra, near Acre. The Arabs suffered several casualties when their fire was returned.
