Dozens of Eritrean and Sudanese migrants marching to Jerusalem are expected to be arrested this afternoon by the Population, Immigration and Borders Authority (PIBA), according to Army Radio.

The migrants are currently outside of Kibbutz Nachshon, near Beit Shemesh, where they stopped overnight. The migrants left the "Holot" open detention center in the Negev on Sunday with the intention of marching to Jerusalem to protest their detention in front of the Prime Minister's residence.

According to Israeli law, they can be arrested 48 hours after failing to return to the detention center.
