Interior Minister Eli Yishai on Monday rejected criticism of the government's decision to establish a facility to house illegal infiltrators in the South of the country, saying that the facility needed to be closed so as not to encourage more infiltration, Israel Radio reported.

Yishai said that the facility will serve as a catalyst for an increase in illegal infiltrators into the country, due to the good conditions it will offer compared to the conditions in their respective countries.

He clarified that Israel respects international convention orders but at the same time will do anything to stop the infiltrators.

The interior minister repeatedly warned that unless we do everything we can to stop this phenomenon, we will lose the state.
