July a Record Month for Illegal Aliens


July was a record month for illegal immigration into Israel, the Immigration Authority said Sunday. According to the Authority's estimates, 1,686 illegal aliens snuck into Israel, most through open areas in Sinai.

The number of illegals, mostly Africans, sneaking into Israel has risen substantially in recent months. At the beginning of the year, the number of illegals entering was about 600 a month.
