Beirut Jewish Quarter Guarded

Strong police guards were posted at the Jewish quarter today as a precaution against spread of the Palestine disorders to this tension-gripped city. There is a tremendous amount of anti-Jewish agitation in South Lebanon, in the vicinity of the summer resort occupied by the exiled former mufti of Jerusalem, Haj main el Husseini. Arab terrorists are putting to the torch fields suspected of belonging to Jews.
