Palestine Military and Civil Officials Map Plans to Check Terrorist Activities

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Further measures to check terrorist activities in Palestine were decided upon today at a meeting of leading military and civil officials under the chairmanship of Field-Marshal Gort, Palestine High Commissioner.

A military tribunal today sentenced Abraham Eisenberg, a 23-year-old Jerusalem resident, to ten years imprisonment on the charge that a detonator and a hand grenade were found on him. Eisenberg, it was established, does not belong to any terrorist group. He was arrested during an excursion when the arms were discovered in a bag the ownership of which he denied.
