Deir Yassin --- update submitted to Parliament a few days after the massacre

FO 371/68504

Note: The Irgun /Hagana massacre of Deir Yassin on the 9th of April, 1948 is the most widely known of the Zionist atroctites to effect its ethnic cleansing of Palestine. But not only was it far fro an isolated act, it was not even of the worst of the Zionist atrocities.

This document is interesting for its corroboration of the Hagana's role in the atrocity, and in the comment about the planned, but aborted, British airstrike as a consequence.
