NGO cites serious shortcoming in treatment of detained migrants by Israel

A report released by a pro-migrant NGO on Monday painted a picture of overcrowding, poor healthcare, insufficient access to legal services and a shortage of translators for the 5,000 African migrants held in the country’s four detention centers.

The report, published by the Hotline for Refugees and Migrants, is based on 72 interviews with Eritrean migrants detained primarily at the Holot and Saharonim facilities in the South, but also at the Givon and Yahalom detention centers near Ramle. The NGO also referenced official reports and freedom of information requests.
