Reporting on the increase of Jewish colonization in Cyprus, an island in the Mediterranean slightly north of Palestine and under British control, the Morning Post states today that Jews now own about 12,000 acres on the island with a gross value of £72,000.

The largest Jewish settlements on Cyprus are located near Limassol and Famagusta.
