Israel Government Orders Half to Confiscation of Food Parcels from Immigrants

Customs officials have been ordered by the Ministry of Agriculture to cease confiscating food parcels brought by new immigrants as a procedure contrary to Premier David Ben Gurion’s declaration in the Knesset last week.

Three thousand Jewish immigrants arrived in Israel today aboard four vessels. Twenty-three hundred came aboard three vessels early in the morning and seven hundred landed at night.
