UNHCR Criticizes Israel Over Infiltrators

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) on Sunday criticized the Israeli government's policy on infiltrators, calling for a reconsideration of the measures taken against them.

"Contrary to the claim of the Israeli government, the Holot facility is more like a detention camp than an open facility," said a representative from the UNHCR office in Tel Aviv.
