Palestine Land Clashes Between Jews and Arabs: Arabs Ploughing Kuskustuban Land Despite Police Order

March 14, 1932
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The police order that both Jews and Arabs should cease ploughing the land at Kuskustabun, where there was a clash between the Jewish settlers and Arab Bedouins, pending the settlement of the dispute, is being ignored by the Arabs, who are continuing to plough the land during the night.

Arab herdsmen have also trespassed with their cattle on lands belonging to the Jewish labour settlement of Yadjur, to which the victims of the shooting outrage a year ago belonged. An Arab policeman who tried to prevent the Arab herdsmen trespassing on the land was brutally beaten by them.
