Two hundred Sudanese asylum seekers were set to be flown from Ben Gurion International Airport in Israel to an undisclosed third country on Monday evening, Channel 2 reported. The Sudanese migrant will then be repatriated to their home country, according to the planned operation.

The government's resettlement plan has been in the works at the Interior Ministry for several months, according to Channel 2, and  the operation was reported to have already received UN approval.

Israel has agreed to give the Sudanese a small grant to help them re-acclimate to life in Sudan in return for their voluntary repatriation.
