Palestine Arab Leads Pro-axis Arab Terrorist Band

Download PDF for this date

Existence of a wide-spread pro-Axis Arab terrorist organization sworn to assassinate prominent pro-Allied Arab leaders was revealed here today with the arrival of leaflets in Arabic found in the packets of several Arabs rounded up as suspects in the murder of Fakhiri Bey Nashashibi in Baghdad early last month.

The leaflet is published by the “Committee of the Great Arab Revolution,” led by Aref Adhel Rozek, one of the chief rebel leaders in the Palestine disturbances of 1936. It announces the murder of Nashashibi and warns that his followers will meet a similar fate.
