The cavalry advances
The yawning hole in the Ottoman line allows the Desert Mounted Corps to gallop through. As Liman has committed almost all his forces along the front, there is little in reserve, leaving Allenby’s cavalry to progress rapidly northwards across favourable ground without encountering much resistance. Within two days of the artillery barrage, the towns of El Afule and Beisan have fallen to the
Mounted Corps, blocking the enemy’s retreat.
