Murder of Arab Causes Great Excitement

Download PDF for this date

Great excitement prevailed in Jerusalem today over the murder of Musa Isdeb, an Arab from a village near Hebron, who was killed at Herod’s Gate, Sunday night. The excitement somewhat abated when three Arabs were arrested this morning on suspicion of being the murderers.

It is presumed that the Arab is a victim of inner political enmities between Arab factions, the murdered man supposedly being active in propaganda against the Grand Mufti.
