Migration of Iranian Jews to Israel to Be Resumed

The immigration of Iranian Jews to Israel via Turkey will be resumed soon, it was learned here today. A group of Israel-bound Persian Jews is scheduled to take the overland route on Sunday. Use of this route was suspended for several months owing to the difficult traveling conditions in Eastern Turkey during the winter months. The Teheran Governments hostile attitude has made it impossible to resume the Iran airlift to Israel.
