Israel Approves Absorption of 100 Syrian Orphans

 

Interior Minister Aryeh Deri authorized the Population and Immigration Authority to begin contacts with relevant agencies on allowing the absorption of children orphaned in the Syrian war.

According to the outline, Israel will be able to absorb approximately 100 orphaned children.

Minister Deri made it clear that, "The situation in Syria is very harsh. Civilians have been slaughtered for years only a few dozen kilometers from Israel. I have decided to order professionals in my ministry to work toward absorbing children on humanitarian grounds in order to render assistance and rescue 100 of them from the horrors and afford them good and normal lives in Israel."
