DAMASCUS, Syria, Dec. 2 (AP)—A mob in Aleppo broke into the Jewish quarter today, attacking restaurants, clubs and shops and burning goods. There also were demonstrations in Homs and Hama, but Damascus, the capital, was quiet, although an Arab general strike was in force. The Chamber of Deputies adjourned after a special session of nine hours at which the Palestine question was debated. A bill for compulsory military service was referred to a special committee, and the Government was authorized to pay £2,000,000 ($920,000) from the reserve fund as the first installment of an assessment by the Arab League for the “liberation” of Palestine.
