Ibn Saud May Enlist Sinai Arabs Against Palestine, Egyptian Press Fears

October 17, 1924
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

That Ibn Saud, the leader of the Wahabis, may compel the Arabs of the Sinai Peninsula to join his army and perhaps move towards the frontiers of Palestine is the fear expressed today by the Egyptian press. The same reports, however, state that while a march of the Wahabis towards Akaba is probable, it is not likely that Ibn Saud will attack Egypt.
