of Israel, which quickly drew waves of Jews not only from Europe, but from across the Arab world. North Africa became an especially dangerous place for Jews following World War II. The 1948 War of Independence in Palestine set off a wave of nationalist fervor in the region leading to anti-Jewish riots in Aden, Morocco, and Tripoli. Jews in Libya suffered a devastating pogrom in 1945. Nearly the entire population—31,000 Jews—would immigrate to Israel within a few short years. One of the most remarkable episodes of this period in JDC history was Operation Magic Carpet (Operation Magic Carpet (Yemen)), the June 1948 airlift of 50,000 Yemenite Jews to Israel. Thousands more Iraqi and Kurdish Jews were transported through Operation Ezra, also funded by JDC.

'''Tripoli''' ( ; Berber (Berber language): '''Ṭrables''') is the capital city and the largest city of Libya. Tripoli, with its metropolitan area, has a population of about 1.1 million people. http: libya demographics_profile.html The city is located in the northwestern part of Libya on the edge of the desert, on a point of rocky land projecting into the Mediterranean and forming a bay.

Tripoli includes the Port of Tripoli and the country's largest commercial and manufacturing centre. It is also the site of the University of Tripoli. The vast Bab al-Azizia barracks, which includes the former family estate of Muammar Gaddafi, is also located in the city. Colonel Gaddafi largely ruled the country from his residence in this barracks.

Tripoli was founded in the 7th century BC by the Phoenicians, who named it Oea. Due to the city's long history, there are many sites of archaeological significance in Tripoli. "Tripoli" may also refer to the ''shabiyah (Districts of Libya#Shabiya)'' (top-level administrative division in the current Libyan system), the Tripoli District.
