Beirut 14/5/1949- No. 79

I referred in a recent report to information I obtained regarding the interest of certain Jordanian and British parties in the visit of Colonel Abdullah al-Tal and a number of his officers to Beirut and to their relevant investigations.

I learned from a trustworthy source, one on which we can rely, that strict instructions were issued to Amman's agents in Beirut to carefully watch every Jordanian officer and non-commissioned officer who comes to Beirut and find out who they meet with. They fear that a conspiracy might be hatched in secret in Beirut against the Jordanian Army, in conjunction with Husni al-Za’eem’s (Ḥusnī al-Za’īm) Government against King Abdullah.
