The Third Aliyah (or wave of Jewish immigration to Palestine) consists mostly of Eastern European and Russian Jews, including some returnees who had left or been expelled by the Turks during WWI. This immigration begins around 1919, when Palestine is still under British military rule. Between 35,000 – 40,000 Jews come to Palestine during this period; unlike previous Aliyot, few left.
