Last stages of Ethiopian aliya set to begin

A charter flight of some 240 Ethiopian Jews is launching the final stages of the aliya from Ethiopia.
Monday's scheduled flight marks the beginning of Operation Dove's Wings, an Israeli government initiative to bring the remainder of the Falash Mura -- Ethiopians whose ancestors converted from Judaism to Christianity -- to Israel by March 2014.
The Ethiopians are waiting in a refugee camp in the Gondar province before coming to Israel.
