African asylum seekers told to leave Israel within 60 days
[Jerusalem Post] The Interior Ministry issued thousands of deportation notices on Sunday to single Eritrean and Sudanese men of working age who entered Israel illegally, demanding that they leave the country within 60 days for an unspecified third country or be forcefully removed, or imprisoned.
However, noting already overcrowded prison conditions, an unidentified senior Israel Prison Service official told the National Security Council that the nation will not be able to house more than 1,000 additional inmates due to a lack of space and funding.
The ministry recently announced that married men, women and children will not be subjected to forced deportation or imprisonment for the time being.
Last month, Rwanda Ambassador Olivier Nduhungirehe issued a strongly-worded denial on Twitter about ongoing reports that his government had made a secret deal with Israel to accept forcefully deported migrants at $5,000 per person.
