Download PDF for this date

The curfew proclaimed in Tripolitania following the pogroms in which more than 100 Jews were killed by Arabs, was lifted today is most of Tripoli, but Arab leaders refuse to guarantee that order will be maintained unless certain conditions are met.

The demands advanced by the Arabs include the removal of a Palestinian company serving with British troops here, disbandment of the Jewish boy scouts, cessation of all Zionist activities and termination of the Jewish quota for this city’s mixed police force.
