Israel is on an operation to have the illegally migrated Africans to the State, deported out of the country, sources explain. The around 40,000 expelled from Israel Africans, are originally Sudanese and Eritreans.

Israel has not clearly said where the infiltrators will go, but tacitly recognizes it is too dangerous for them to return the Sudanese and Eritreans home.

Considering the fact, activists in Israel have informed that Israel has signed agreements with countries, Rwanda and Uganda, to take in the refugees to be deported and both agreements were agreed to, by both governments.

However, Uganda has now stepped forward to inform that they are totally green of what Israel is saying, and they also claim they do not know of any signed agreement.

‘Uganda is disturbed by these reports,’ the country’s Foreign Minister Henry Okello Oryem informed the press. ‘We have no such agreement with the government of Israel to send refugees here.’

Under Israel’s programme, migrants have until the end of March to leave. Each will receive a plane ticket and $3 500 to do so, and those who remain will face arrest.

The Israel Government has informed that many of the undocumented migrants from Africa say they are fleeing conflict and persecution and are seeking refugee status. Israeli officials contend they are economic migrants, and have resisted calls to recognize them as refugees.

Adi Drori-Avraham, from the Israeli group ASSAF (Aid Organization for Refugees and Asylum Seekers) on Wednesday, told journalists that, ‘from what we know, Uganda is a party to the amended agreement, allowing that people can be coerced into leaving.’

‘It has published a denial, although I have to say that Uganda has for years been denying that it has some kind of deal with Israel,’ he said, ‘but we see that thousands arrive there so I don’t know how much Uganda’s denials should be taken seriously.’

In August, Israel’s High Court of Justice ruled that the immigration policy was legal, but also said that Israeli authorities had to first ensure that the countries to which migrants were being deported to, were safe and have agreed to host them.
