JERUSALEM/ASMARA (BosNewsLife)-- International aid workers say nearly 30,000 Eritrean Christian refugees are struggling to survive in Israel and many may soon be moved to jail due to new government policies. "Next year the limited periods in the Holot detention center may, if the Israeli government is successful in its current negotiations, be replaced with indefinite periods in a real prison," warned Barnabas Fund, a Christian relief, and advocacy group.
