Israel plans to forcefully deport asylum seekers from South Sudan back to their country, even though UN directives, aid organizations and local testimonies indicate that the war in South Sudan is still raging and the area is unsafe for civilians. In addition, the new state lacks food and proper infrastructure. Predictions for 2012 are that the situation will get worse.

The Administration of Population and Immigration deported a foreign national, while the Supreme Court was discussing his case. The man was imprisoned for two years in the Ktzi’ot prison, and a Border Control officer stated that he ”suffers from earache and was hearing impaired, as a direct result of abuse.” A Supreme Court petition was filed to apply for his release on humanitarian grounds, but he was deported to Ethiopia, without informing the court or his lawyers.
