A string of 9 bombings lasting from March 1950-June 1951 against Jewish targets in Baghdad catalyze the exodus of almost all of Iraq’s remaining Jewish population, most of whom settle in Israel. Targets range from Jewish Homes and businesses to the famous Masouda Shem-Tov Synagogue. In the spring of 1948, there are approximately 150,000 Jews living in Iraq. By the end of 1951, less than 30,000 remain.
