| Subtext from the book "Before their Diaspora" by Walid Khalidi: "Palestinians driven into the sea at Jaffa Harbor, late April 1948. |
With the land routes cut off by the Haganah, tens of thousands of the citizens of Jaffa and neighboring villages fled by boat to Gaza and Egypt; scores were drowned.
Jaffa was to have been the main port of the Palestinian state envisioned in the UN partition recommendation of 29 November 1947."
