How Pigeons Helped Israel Win the War of Independence

An article by Reuters published today, on Yom Ha’Atzmaut (Independence Day), the national day of celebration in Israel, which commemorates the Israeli Declaration of Independence in 1948. Today is marked by ceremonies and observances throughout Israel, much the same way July 4th, 1776, is remembered here in the United States.
