Nazi Wireless Spreads Reports of Arab Attacks on Jews

Download PDF for this date

Renewed Nazi efforts to provoke unrest in Palestine were seen today in German wireless reports that Arabs were increasing their attacks on the Jews in the Holy Land, particularly in the orange-growing districts.

The German reports, assertedly based on information received by the Spanish Orange Syndicate form Jaffa, said that the general situation in Palestine had become very grave. Arab terrorists put to the torch and destroyed many large Jewish orange plantations in the Jaffa region. Many plantations have been ruined by lack of water due to sabotaging of irrigation systems, the reports claimed.
