Yishai: Israeli border prisons ready to detain 10,000 African 'infiltrators'

Israel's interior Minister, Eli Yishai, has said that special detention centres to house African 'infiltrators' along the border with Egypt are primed to accommodate approximately 10,000 individuals by the end of the year.


During a visit to Saharonim Prison in the Negev on Thursday, Yishai was quoted by Hebrew Radio as saying that the aim behind detaining the 'infiltrators' is to force them to leave Israel voluntarily, so as to restore calm and security, and maintain the Jewish majority in the country.
