NKW YORK, February 21 (Asso

a wide r.one north and east of Jerusa

peated blow that appear to be meet
ing with less and less resistance.
This week, according to the official
reports from General Allenby, the main
operations have been against the va
riou Turkish detachments holding
village posts enst of the Holy City'.
Without fighting any engagements of
importance the Dri'.iah lines in this di
rection have been advanced along a
fifteen mile front to a depth of two
miles, the Turks falling back as rapid
y as the British advanced. A few hun
Ired were cut off and capture!.
Movement Resisted
There has been a grnlunl advance,

the Turkinh opposition i tiffer.
There are mhs that utiother blow is

army on this front has not been badly
affected by the disorganization which
has swept through the other Russian
armies, it is believed the Briti. h will I
