A few dozen Eritrean migrants on Friday demonstrated outside of the Eritrean Embassy in Tel Aviv.

On Thursday, the Physicians for Human Rights-Israel organization revealed that IDF soldiers returned dozens of African migrants to Egypt’s Sinai peninsula two weeks ago.

According to PHR-Israel, a 20-year-old Eritrean man who came to the organization’s free clinic in Jaffa at the beginning of March said that in late February, he had been part of a group of 67 African migrants who reached Israeli territory after being held for ransom in Beduin-run camps in the Sinai.
