Interior Minister Eli Yishai on Thursday reacted to the Jerusalem District Court ruling allowing the expulsion of South Sudanese migrants, saying that he hopes this is the first step in the expulsion of the entire migrant population.

"I praise the court decision that will pave the way for the expulsion of around 1,500 infiltrators from South Sudan," Yishai said. "I hope this is just the first of many steps that will allow us to expel the infiltrators from Eritrea and Sudan as well."

Yishai added that he is committed to the intermediary solution of building a tent-city to house the remaining infiltrators until the can be expelled "so that they will not remain in Israeli cities."

"This is not a war against infiltrators," Yishai said. "This is a war for the preservation of the Zionist and Jewish dream in the land of Israel."
