Zionist organizations were aroused today over a series of raids on Zionist offices in Brzesc-Litewski, Lwow and Pinsk, for which dissident Zionist-Revisionists were blamed.

Unidentified persons entered the premises of the Gordonia organization in Brzesc. and destroyed fixtures, documents and all portraits except that of dr. Theodor Herzl, founder of political Zionism, also leaving a map of Palestine untouched. Twelve Zionist bodies in the city issued a statement accusing Zionist-Revisionists of carrying out the raid.

Jewish newspapers reported that members of the B’rith Trumpeldor, Revisionist youth organization, raided the premises of the Shomer Hatzair, labor Zionist youth organization, in Lwow, beating three members and wrecking the premises. Another raid was reported in Pinsk, where Revisionists were said to have damaged the offices of Hanoar Hatzioni, Zionist youth group.
