Pte 242546 Harry EVERETT 1/5 Norfolks is shown as 'died in Palestine at Jarabschi 30/10/1917'.

Does anyone know the whereabouts of Jarabschi, please?

Just had a look at his service record on Ancestry, and it says he was taken POW on 19/4/17 (2nd Battle of Gaza?) and died of malaria or tropical cachexy at Yarbashi/Yarbaschi (= Yarbaşı in SE Turkey) on 30/10/17. Jarbaschi would be the German spelling. He was originally buried in the cemetery outside Yarbasi hospital, and probably moved to Baghdad after the war.

Hope this helps!
