Opposition grows to Israel’s plan to deport refugees

in MIDLE EAST/POLITICS by

Psychologists have joined the growing ranks of professionals, academics and religious figures who invite the Israeli government to revise the plan to expel tens of thousands of asylum seekers, announcing that they would actively work to thwart forced deportations. During the last week, demonstrations and protests were organized after reports that the government was planning to start deporting refugees in the coming weeks, having signed agreements with Rwanda and Uganda to welcome the approximately 35,000 refugees some years have reached Israel, mainly from Eritrea and Sudan. 530 psychologists have written that the plan would result in further harm to refugees; a separate group of 350 doctors, including managers from hospitals and other medical professionals, including nurses and social workers, signed letters asking the government to stop deportations.
