Scotland Yard Sends Commission to Palestine to Enquire into Efficiency of Police

Download PDF for this date

A special commission from Scotland Yard will arrive here tomorrow to enquire into the efficiency of the Palestine police and to work out new plans for combatting underground activities in the country.

Meanwhile, the Palestine police tonight raided newspaper offices and print shops throughout Tel Aviv in a search for “underground” presses producing illegal pamphlets. They took “proofs” of type for comparison with publications issued by the extremist groups.

The Irgun Zvai Leumi today posted notices in Tel Aviv announcing that all Palestine railroads, with the exception of one branch line serving Jewish settlers in the north of the country, will be blown up. Travelers were warned not to use the railroads.
