African protest Israeli deportation plan


(MENAFN) The Israeli plan of deporting Africans is being widely protested by thousands of them who seeks asylum.

The Israeli government says the migrants have to leave the country for an unnamed African destination in exchange for USD 3,500 and a plane ticket, or they will be incarcerated indefinitely.

The Africans, nearly all from dictatorial Eritrea and war-torn Sudan, say they feel great appreciation for the Zionist entity, coupled with dread over the looming expulsions.

Israel considers the vast majority of the nearly 40,000 migrants to be job seekers and says it has no legal obligation to keep them.

Critics have called the government plan unethical and a stain on 'Israel's image' as a refuge for Jewish migrants.
