Amid reports that an undisclosed country has agreed to absorb the majority of Eritrean citizens who have illegally entered Israel, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said on Sunday that it is now time to focus on repatriating the migrants.

"The fence that we built in the south is achieving the result for which it was erected," Netanyahu said. "As opposed to the over 2,000 infiltrators who entered Israel exactly a year ago, this May only two crossed the border and were detained," he added.
