The Population, Immigration and Borders Authority (PIBA) began loading South Sudanese migrants onto buses in cities around Israel Sunday, ahead of their flight back to South Sudan.

The first plane carrying 120 South Sudanese migrants was slated to leave Israel Sunday night.



PIBA announced Friday that it was extending the one-week deadline for South Sudanese migrants to voluntarily leave Israel in exchange for 1,000 euros and a flight ticket home courtesy of the State of Israel. 

The Interior Ministry issued the ultimatum last week, saying the migrants would be arrested and expelled after the deadline was up.
