March 1946: the vessel Wingate, with 238 ma’apilim on board, is escorted by the British destroyers that intercepted her. Forces of the Hagana had organized to receive the ma’apilim in Tel Aviv, in an operation that was called "Wingate Night". But the ship never got to Tel Aviv as it had been captured. The whole incident led to high tension in the Tel Aviv area and to shooting. Bracha Fuld of blessed memory, a member of the Palmach, was killed that night during a fire exchange.
