Israel is unlawfully coercing almost 7,000 Eritrean and Sudanese nationals into leaving the country at great personal risk, Human Rights Watch says.

They have been denied access to fair and efficient asylum procedures and detained unlawfully, a new report says.

Earlier this year, African asylum seekers in Israel staged mass protests over their treatment.

Israel says its policies on illegal immigrants and refugees comply with international law.

It insists that the Africans are not asylum seekers but economic migrants who see Israel as an attractive destination because it is the nearest developed country where they can find jobs.

‘Illegal infiltrators’

Eritreans and Sudanese began arriving in Israel through Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula in large numbers in 2006. By December 2012, about 37,000 Eritreans and 14,000 Sudanese had entered the country.

HRW says that over the past eight years, the Israeli authorities have employed various measures to encourage them to leave.

They include “indefinite detention, obstacles to accessing Israel’s asylum system, the rejection of 99.9% of Eritrean and Sudanese asylum claims, ambiguous policies on being allowed to work, and severely restricted access to healthcare”, it alleges.

In September 2013, the Israeli Supreme Court ruled that a 2012 amendment to an anti-infiltration law, which allowed for the indefinite detention of people for illegal entry, was unlawful.

In response, the Israeli parliament passed another amendment to the law in December that established the Holot facility in the remote Negev desert for those considered “infiltrators”.

Hundreds of Eritreans and Sudanese have since been ordered to report to the centre, where they live in conditions that HRW says breach international law on arbitrary detention.

The Israeli authorities say they are not detained because they can leave for a few hours at a time. However, they are required to report three times a day and to be in the centre at night. The only way for them to secure their release is to be recognised as a refugee or leave the country.

In February 2013, Israel allowed Eritreans and Sudanese to lodge asylum claims in significant numbers. However, as of March 2014, the authorities had only reviewed slightly more than 450 “detainee” cases, and the rejection rate has been almost 100%, HRW says.

“Destroying people’s hope of finding protection by forcing them into a corner and then claiming they are voluntarily leaving Israel is transparently abusive,” said Gerry Simpson, senior refugee researcher at Human Rights Watch and author of the report.

“Eritreans and Sudanese in Israel are left with the choice of living in fear of spending the rest of their days locked up in desert detention centres or of risking detention and abuse back home.”

HRW says Israel is violating the international principle of “non-refoulement”, which forbids states from returning refugees and asylum seekers to places where their lives or freedom would be threatened.

In response to the report, the Israeli foreign ministry said: “Israel treats illegal migrants entering its territory in accordance with international law, including the UN treaty on refugees.

“Illegal migrants are able to file a request to be granted the status of refugees, and can also appeal the decision by the Israeli authorities regarding their status to the Israeli courts,” it said.

Migrants had not been expelled, the statement said, adding that those who had left had chosen to do so “of their own free will”.

    Well , there is no substantial solution in this case
    unless we figure out to identify our root problem .
    By ignoring to take responsibility this kind scenario
    will not stop from occurring . I prefer to hold my
    breath until the day of HGDF ending existence .

    I have a dream eritreans businessmen cross the border in Ethiopia and ethiopians in Eritrea.

    I have a dream to go to Eritrea whenever i want to.
    I have a dream eritreans singer a tour in ethiopia and the same ethiopians do tour in Eritrea.

    • selamawit2 September 10, 2014

      Hi Tamrat,

      thank you for your kind new year wishes – a happy and blessed (Geez) new year also to you and to your loved ones!!!
      All in all your dreams sound wonderful! If Ethiopia and Eritrea would live in peace with each other, there would be an renaissance in whole Africa!!! We have been already near to that – till Iseyas provoked the war between Eritrea and Ethiopia etc..
      And our peoples are not far from that as most of us don’t hate each other – the problem is somwhere else as you know.

      (But there are two little points you should consider:
      – You say “I have a dream as we ethiopians say Eritrea is Ours and eritreans also say ethiopia are Ours.”
      that could be misunderstood by some people as somthing like anti eritrean sovereignity…
      – The Tewahdo church in Eritrea (normally) is as important as the Tewahdo church in Ethiopia. And Geez is historical and relevant
      for both peoples…
      So, as a sister i allow myself to tell you frankly, you need also to say “Happy to Eritrean (Geez)New year!” 😉

    • Wedi Erey September 10, 2014

      Hi Tamrat;

      I agree with almost all of your good wishes for the Peoples of Eritrea and Ethiopia. Except for the ‘wish’ that Eritreans claim Ethiopia as theirs, and Ethiopians claim Eritrea is theirs. Because both of us have our own countries, and we should not wish on other’s country for us. There will only be respect between us if we agree to respect each other’s sovereignty.

      Otherwise I fully respect your good wishes for a brotherly neighborhood, not only between Eritreans and Ethiopians, but also between all the Peoples of the Horn of Africa.

      ርሑስ ኣውደኣመት ንኹልኹም ኣመንቲ ክርስትና!!

    okey Tamrat Tamrat, we Eritrean we dont have any proplem with our neighboures,the proplem is the Evil dictator Isias i hope one day he will disapear to hell, and the whole rigion it will be peace and free

  • sogum smerr September 10, 2014

    Tamrat,
    If Equality and Justice prevailed in nations it will lead to peace and economic development which spontaneously lead to unification of those nations. In the contrary when inequality, injustice, backwardness and prejudice are the master of the situation then the result is war and instability. When equality and justice and economic development prevail in all Africa, it is not impossible to see United States of Africa ASU in French.
