Arab RefugeesTel Aviv, Israel.  One of the strangest transmigrations in history is now taking place through Israeli territory from Egyptian-held Gaza to Jordan.  Thousands of Arab refugees are passing unmolested from crowded Gaza to Jordan’s Hebron where the International Red Cross makes living more bearable.

Caravans totaling 500 to 600 a week pass quietly through the dried up wadis or stram beds during the still of the night.  As long as the refugees are unarmed, do no plundering on their way and attend solely to their own migratory business, there is no interference by the Israeli forces.
