Officials from South Sudan are set to arrive in Israel to help coordinate the deportation of up to 1,500 of its citizens.
At least 300 South Sudanese migrants reportedly have signed voluntary departure forms indicating their willingness to be repatriated to their home country, according to Israeli media reports.
More than 100 illegal migrants from South Sudan have been rounded up in immigration control sweeps this week.
Some 200 South Sudanese migrants are scheduled to fly out of Israel on Sunday, as well as another planeload in July after the families’ children have finished school.
