A skirmish between Bedouins and Chassidic settlers took place yesterday in the neighborhood of the Chassidic colony, Avodath Israel.
A group of Bedouin shepherds came near the colony, expressing their wish to pasture their herd on the land of the colony. The Jewish settlers explained to the Bedouin leaders that this was forbidden because of the quarantine established by the Palestine government in view of the prevailing cattle plague. The Bedouins insisted, following which a fight occurred. One Bedouin was injured in the skirmish. Five of the colonists were arrested.
