March 12, 1921 The Partition of the Palestine Mandate

Trans-JordanTrans Jordan is Created and the Palestine Mandate is Reduced by 75% to 10,000 square miles

“The outstanding question to be discussed (at the Cairo conference) was the policy to be adopted with regard to Trans-Jordania, and its effect upon the strength of the imperial garrison in Palestine.

The conference recommended that Trans-Jordania should be constituted an Arab providence of Palestine under an Arab governor, responsible to the high commissioner. On this assumption they recommended the immediate military occupation of Trans-Jordania, without which they understood that it would be impossible to secure a settled government there or to stop anti-French action initiated in the British zone.”
