Israel has carried out a number of covert operations to bring Jews out of war-torn countries, including Syria
Many of Yemen’s last remaining Jews arrived secretly in Israel at the weekend after a covert operation to whisk them out of the war-torn country.
It was unclear how the 19 immigrants left Yemen, which is under a Saudi-led naval and air blockade. The Jewish Agency, a quasi-governmental body that promotes immigration, said only that it was a “complex and covert” operation and that the Yemenis did not travel on an Israeli plane.
The US State Department helped to organise their travel. Israel and Yemen have no diplomatic relations.Source
