Jews from Tunis to Be Transported to Israel Via Italian Port

Jewish immigrants from Tunis bound for Israel will no longer be transported via the French port of Marseilles, but through the Italian port of Naples, the Jewish Agency office here announced today.

The number of departing immigrants will be restricted during the winter, because of the onset of seasonal storms in the Mediterranean. The immigrants will be taken to Naples in Italian vessels and transshipped to Israel passenger ships for the journey to Haifa.
