In its 1938 annual report, the British Mandatory office wrote,
|Lifting the siege|
"The Old City of Jerusalem, which had become the rallying point of a large number of bandits and from which acts of violence, murder and intimidation were being organized and perpetrated freely and with impunity, was fully re-occupied by the troops on the 19th of the month."
The Library of Congress' American Colony collection contains several dozen pictures of the British retaking the Old City.
