See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

That he does not intend to attack Palestine or Mesopotamia, having reached his goal-Mecca-was the statement made by Ibn Saud, leader of the victorious Wahabis. Ibn Saud also declared that he is most anxious to have England’s friendship.

No mention, however, was made by Ibn Saud concerning his intentions with regard to Transjordania, which was previously attacked by his tribesmen.
