featured in the article.

 Israel will begin deporting African migrants to third countries without their consent.

The migrants, from Eritrea and Sudan, will be sent to a southern Israeli prison if they refuse, Haaretz reported, citing the Interior Ministry. Israel’s attorney general, Yehuda Weinstein, approved the process, under which the migrants will be given 30 days notice before being told to which third country they will be traveling. No timetable was given for the deportations.
