Two Planes Bring 280 Afghanistani, Kurdistani and Iranian Jews to Israel

Two planes in the Teheran-Lydda airlift service yesterday brought in 280 Afghanistani, Kurdistani, Iranian and Iraqi Jews from Teheran, Iran. The planes also brought in three ancient Scrolls of the Law.

Iranian Jews here, reporting deteriorating conditions among Iran’s 90,000 Jews, called today for increased migration of Jews from that country to the Jewish state.
