Israel to give info. on African deportation plan


(MENAFN) The Israeli government has been given until Monday to give any more details of its plan to deport more than 40,000 African refugees.

The Supreme Court set the deadline after suspending the program at a hearing earlier this month.

The Israeli government's new rules "state that Eritreans and Sudanese who didn't file asylum requests by the end of 2017, or whose asylum requests were rejected, can be deported to a third country."

There are presently about 40,000 Eritreans and Sudanese in Israel, including some 5,000 children born there. So far, only ten Eritreans and one Sudanese have been granted asylum.
