Afghanistan Jews Admitted into Palestine After Being Sent Backwards and Forwards for Week Between Pa

After being sent backwards and forwards for a week between the northern frontier of Palestine and Syria, the future of twenty Jewish emigrants from Afghanistan holding tourist visas was provisionally settled to-day. The Jewish Agency obtained permission for a family of four and two single men to enter Palestine, and the rest have been given permission by the French authorities to stay temporarily in Damascus, where they were at first refused refuge. The group includes several women and children who have been suffering want and exposure during the past week, having no place where to rest.
