Thousands protest in Tel Aviv against planned deportations of African migrants

Thousands were taking part in a protest in Tel Aviv on Saturday night against the planned deportation of African asylum seekers and migrants.

Protesters marched in the south Tel Aviv neighborhood of Neve Shaanan, where many of the refugees have settled, while calling on the Israeli government to reconsider a December decision stipulating that the Interior Ministry will deport asylum seekers starting in March to African countries with which there are secret agreements. Those countries are believed to be Rwanda and Uganda, although both have denied involvement.
