Two weeks before they are scheduled to leave Israel and return to their homes in South Sudan, the Interior Ministry’s Population and Immigration Registry agreed Tuesday to temporarily release 120 detained African migrants in order to allow them to make personal arrangements, Israel Radio reported.

The decision to release them came after an agreement was reached between officials from the Population and Immigration Registry and representatives of the South Sudanese government.

Some 154 South Sudanese nationals are scheduled to leave Israel Monday night voluntarily.

According to the Israel radio report, however, an additional 129 African migrants have entered the country illegally so far this month.
