Jews' transfer begins

SANA'A, Jan. 28 (Saba) – Four Jewish families have arrived in Sana'a coming from Amran province launching the relocation of Jews to the city, a spokesman for head of the Parliament Committee on Freedoms and Rights.

As they arrived they were handed over four houses at the Sa'awan Tourist City, the spokesman said.

Among the arriving Jewish families was the family of the Jew who was murdered in September in the district of Raidah in Amran by an ex-pilot, a Jewish source said.

However, the four Jewish families have not yet settled in their new houses in Sana'a as they are being equipped.

Meanwhile, Jews are trying to convince authorities that houses allocated for them in the Sa'awan Tourist City are not suitable as they will not be sufficient to accommodate all Jews families.

A Jewish household consists of at least 16 members.

Moreover, many Jewish families in Amran refuse to move to new houses in Sana'a claiming there are not a warship place and a school to teach children.

In this regard, the spokesman said that all issues relating to the relocation were discussed with Jewish representatives last week.

The Jewish large families will have more than a house and some houses would be allocated as worship places and schools, the spokesman said.

Jews in Amran have recently appealed to authorities to transfer them from Amran as they started to experience intimidations by locals.

In September Jew Masha Yaish, 28, was killed by an ex-pilot for religions reasons.

Responding to the complaints of Jews in the province, President Ali Abdullah Saleh ordered authorities to transfer all Jews in Amran to Sana'a.

President Saleh ordered the allocation of a house in Sana'a for every Jewish family as well as YR 2 million.

The transfer was scheduled for early this month and has been delayed as all arrangements were not completed.
