🇮🇱 Israel scraps UN deal to resettle African asylum seekers | Al Jazeera English

The UN's refugee agency says it is disappointed that Israel has scrapped a deal to relocate half of the African asylum seekers living there.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu faced intense pressure from right-wing groups which oppose the agreement, which would have let at least 16,000 Africans stay, and another 16,000 resettled in Western countries.
