Interior Minister Eli Yishai on Thursday called the situation in Eritrea better than in Sderot.

Yishai's comments came hours after the interior ministry announced that migrants from the Ivory Coast have two weeks to leave voluntarily before being deported by force.

"Infiltrators, starting now, will be thrown directly into jail," Yishai said. "I insist that the Eritrean and Sudanese migrants will all eventually be thrown out of the country... the situation in Eritrea is better than in Sderot and southern Israel."

Yishai added that Israeli officials are in contact with counterparts in Sudan and Eritrea to organize the deportation of migrants.
