Israel is secretly transferring African asylum seekers to Uganda, Haaretz newspaper reported on Wednesday, quoting a senior Israeli government official.
The paper said that, over the past month, dozens of people agreed to leave for Uganda and some had already departed.
The Israeli immigration service spokeswoman could not be reached by AFP for comment.
Last June, a government official told the Israeli Supreme Court agreement had been reached with an unnamed third country prepared to take in Africans seeking asylum in Israel.
