Report: Israel Brings Yemeni Jews -Eli Leon 

The Iranian news agency Fars reported that a group of Yemeni Jews had flown to Tel Aviv via Doha on a Qatari flight.

The report indicated that Israel is working to bring more Yemeni Jews to Israel in the near future.

The Jewish community in Yemen last year numbered 130. Some 100 Yemenite Jews arrived in Israel between 2009 and 2012.
