Jerusalem: Israel on Sunday marked the displacement of hundreds of thousands of Jews from Arab countries after the 1948 Arab-Israeli war.
In a bid to draw attention to their plight, Israel formally marked the event with a state ceremony under a new law naming November 30 as the anniversary.
“Nearly 800,000 came here and the rest (around 56,000) went to the United States, France, Italy and elsewhere,” said Meir Kahlon, chairman of the Central Organisation for Jews from Arab Countries and Iran.
Kahlon himself came to Israel as a child from Libya and spent his first years in the Jewish state in one of the tent camps set up to shelter the flood of newcomers.
