The Israeli Ministry of Internal Affairs suspended the order to send the Eritrean-dominated-African refugees to the Hilot prison, stated Haaretz news media.
Haaretz pointed out that the ministry was forced to release a statement on September 29 in response to commentaries by different news media in the wake of the ruling of Israeli Supreme Court for the closure of the Hilot Prison, alleging the Israeli government is forcing refugees to report themselves to the prison.
The Supreme Court has ruled for the prison that is housing two thousand (2000) refugees – mostly Eritreans, to be closed within the next three (3) months.
However, the ruling is reported to have been facing opposition from various members of the Israeli cabinet and the parliament.
