Palestine Troops to Be Reinforced

An infantry brigade will be dispatched to Palestine early in the Autumn, bringing the total to three brigades, the military correspondent of the Times reported today in reviewing the military forces stationed in Palestine. Other units now in Palestine are artillery, cavalry and air forces, of which last week three more squadrons were sent to the Middle East within easy reach of Palestine. Two squadrons are stationed in Palestine and Transjordan. There are now eleven squadrons in the Near East, only two of them somewhat distant from the Suez Canal and Palestine.
