Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Monday signaled he was ready to begin repatriating African migrants, which he termed the "second stage" in the effort to clear Israel of illegal infiltrators.

"We have succeeded in blocking the entry of infiltrators from Africa to Israel," Netanyahu said at the start of a discussion he convened on the issue. "After having faced the threat of the entry of hundreds of thousands, this month, not one infiltrator entered Israel's cities."
