Britain Transfers Armies from Palestine and Syria to Egypt, Nazi Radio Reports

The Nazi radio in Berlin today reported that British military forces in Palestine and Syria are being transferred to Egypt in anticipation of hostilities on Egyptian soil.

At the same time, the Rome radio reported today that with the arrival of the Axis Libyan armies at the Egyptian frontier, anti-British demonstrations have broken out in Cairo, Alexandria and even in Syria where pro-Axis Arab elements are gaining influence among the local Arab population.

The Berlin and Rome radio stations boast that there are many Axis followers among the Arabs in Egypt, Syria and Palestine. Their broadcasts contain the usual anti-British and anti-Jewish propaganda.
