Yemenite is Slain Fleeing to Palestine

Download PDF for this date

A Yemenite Jew was killed today by the Aden frontier force when he attempted to cross the Yemen frontier on his way to Palestine, according to a cable received here.

Jews of Yemen have been harshly treated by the fanatical Moslems of their country and are emigrating to Palestine as quickly as possible

Aden, a British protectorate, has prohibited Yemenite Jews from establishing residence there and has even barred them from passing through the port on their way to Palestine.
