December 31, 1947 British Authorities Praise Conduct of Arab Police

Arab Auxiliary Police“The British authorities tonight issued a communiqué praising the conduct of the Arab auxiliary police and the Arab Legion troops present when forty-one Jews were beaten to death with clubs and scrap iron in the refineries in Haifa after the Jewish bombing yesterday.

The communiqué said the Arabs kept rioters away from the buildings they were guarding, thereby protecting the Jews inside, and escorted thirty to forty Jews out to safety.”
