South Sudanese To Be Repatriated to Their Homeland


The Jerusalem District Prosecutor's Office on Wednesday ruled that repatriating South Sudanese citizens to South Sudan does not pose a risk to their lives. Before South Sudan became an independent country earlier this year, Israeli authorities were reluctant to send illegals back to the war torn country. However the new ruling indicates that Israeli authorities now believe that asylum seekers can safely return to their homes.
