August 28, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Ten Jewish workmen were injured in a fight with Arab shepherds and Benouins in an attempt to wrest from the shepherds a young Jewish girl whom they had carried off with the alleged intent to attack.

The fight occurred at Tel Joseph. The “Chaluzim” working in the fields on hearing the girl’s cries made a rush at the kidnappers. Bedouins passing by were attracted to the scene, and took the part of the shepherds. The “Chaluzim”, outnumbered, were injured in the scuffle, but managed to bring the girl back unharmed to Tel Joseph.
