“Giant Concentration Camp”: What Critics Are Calling Israel’s Planned Tent City for African Migrants
In all of one month, the Israeli government has decided that African migrants are a “cancer” to society, rounded them up, and created an expeditious plan to expel them.
Now, Haaretz reports that the Israeli government is reportedly planning to build a camp to house African migrants who are attempting to cross over from Egypt to Israel:
The ministry says the move, together with other proposed changes in the plans for the camps, are intended “to meet the tight schedule to implement the cabinet’s decision” to build the camp for African refugees crossing the Egyptian border into Israel.
But the Bimkom planning rights group says the exemption and changes would create “a huge concentration camp with harsh conditions. The changes would enable the imprisonment of thousands of people in tents for three years or more, in difficult physical conditions and extreme climate conditions.”
The Israeli Defense Ministry is planning to set up temporary camps to house 5,000 migrants in the first compound, and 9,000 in the second.
