Over 38,000 Africans include 27,494 Eritreans and 7,869 Sudanese. Migrants will be sent to Rwanda and Uganda and similar third party countries. They will likely leave those places for Europe and the US.
Israel’s cabinet voted on Sunday to close a migrant detention centre, as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced an agreement to deport 40,000 Africans who entered the country illegally.
Ministers unanimously approved plans to shutter the Holot centre in southern Israel and gave migrants a three-month deadline to leave the country or face deportation, said the interior and public security ministries.
“The infiltrators will have the option to be imprisoned or leave the country,” the public security ministry said in a statement.
