Eleven members of the Mizrachi colony, Sheik Habreik, in the Valley of Jezreel, were arrested and released on bail of £30 each following a dispute between the colonists and a group of Jewish shepherds.

The farmers of the Mizrachi colony accused the shepherds of trespassing, while the shepherds declared that the colonists illegally detained their cattle. Both sides urge that the dispute be presented to the Zionist Executive for settlement.
