Israel reaches final decision on deportation of Africans

Israel has reached its final decision on the plans to deport Africans.

The country has decided to shelve plans to deport about 40,000 African refugees.

According to Aljazeera, Israel faced fierce criticism from human rights groups for seeking to forcibly deporting tens of thousands of mostly African asylum seekers.

The country had until now classified the refugees, most from Sudan and Eritrea, as illegal immigrants, with asylum applications approved almost only in exceptional cases

A State officials said during a Supreme Court session “that they would not distribute new deportation orders, and that those already distributed would be cancelled.

“The deportation of refugees against their will is no longer being considered as a possibility.

“The Israeli government’s attempts to negotiate with Uganda or Rwanda over receiving deported asylum seekers had failed.”
