Report: Israel willing to accept 100 Syrian orphans

(JTA) – Israel is willing to accept 100 Syrian refugee children orphaned in the ongoing civil war, according to an Israeli television report citing a Cabinet minister. Channel 10 reported Wednesday night, Jan. 25, that Interior Minister Aryeh Deri approved the plan, which has not yet been put into action.

The children would live in a dormitory for their first three months in the country, according to the report, and then be placed in foster care with Israeli- Arab families. The children would hold temporary resident status and could become permanent residents after four years, which would allow them to stay in Israel for the rest of their lives.

Any immediate relatives of the refugee orphans, including siblings, also could be granted refugee status, according to the report.
