576 Yemenite Jews Reach Palestine; Last Immigrants from Non-belligerent Areas

Download PDF for this date

Five-hundred seventy-six Yemenite Jews arrived here today and were immediately transferred to the Athlete clearance camp pending release by the immigration authorities. They are the last Jewish immigrants who will be allowed to enter Palestine from non-belligerent countries. All remaining immigration certificates will go to Jews from war areas or occupied territory.
