According to Press TV, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at a cabinet meeting on Wednesday “This plan will get underway today.”
Based on the plan, nearly 38,000 migrants, mainly Eritreans and Sudanese, who entered Occupied Palestinian Territories illegally will have until the end of March to leave, otherwise they will be arrested.
Moreover, the Holot detention facility for African asylum seekers in Occupied Territories, which currently holds 970 people is set to be closed.
The plan, initially approved by the cabinet in November, has drawn concerns from the UN refugee agency.
The new regulation currently makes exceptions for women, children, parents of children and victims of human trafficking, but such exemptions are temporary.
Zionist regime has made arrangements to send the Sudanese and Eritreans migrants to Rwanda and Uganda over concerns that they may face danger if they return home.
Activists and migrants, however, oppose the decision, saying Zionist regime is trading the migrants with other countries against their will.
Large numbers of African migrants started coming to the Occupied Territories though Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula in 2007. Those arrested at the Egyptian border were jailed in the Negev Desert in Southern Occupied Palestinian Territories.
On release, the migrants settled in an area south of Tel Aviv, but their presence caused harsh criticism among Israeli residents in southern Tel Aviv and right-wing politicians.
Official figures show that the Israeli regime has put a total of 311 African refugees behind bars without trial in the 15 months before September 2017.
Rights activists say Israel has created a separate justice system which restricts the rights of the people with a different skin color.
