The Jerusalem Administrative Affairs Court rejected an appeal by human rights organizations against the Interior Minister’s decision to stop providing “collective protection” to South Sudanese citizens who live in Israel.  The court’s decision means that the Government could start deporting South Sudanese citizens.

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.
