Operation Solomon marks 20th anniversary

Operation Solomon was a 1991 covert
 Israeli military operation meant to 
bring Ethiopian Jews to Israel.

The operation was prompted by concerns that rebel forces in Ethiopia were about to topple the then-highly vulnerable regime, threatening the country with dangerous political destabilization.

Operation Solomon, which marks its 20th anniversary this month, saw Israeli forces open and maintain a 36-hour long air corridor, which saw 34 Israeli aircraft – IAF C-130s and El Al cargo planes – perform a non-stop shuttle, carrying 14,325 Ethiopian Jews safely to Israel.
