Jewish Agency to Fly Stranded Yemenite Jews to Israel

Download PDF for this date

The Jewish Agency today made arrangements to dispatch a plane to Aden, following receipt of a report that 38 Yemenite Jews had crossed the desert surrounding Aden and were now in the British colony awaiting transportation to Israel. They are part of a group of some 350 Yemenite Jews, most of whom are still travelling in the desert.
