Prolonged Permits for Gaza Refugees
The Swedish Migration Board decided Monday to temporarily extend residence permits to all asylum seekers from Gaza.
Already by December 19th last year the board temporarily postponed all planned deportations to the area, because of the situation in the country. Now permits will be extended until November 1st.
The reason behind the board’s decision is that Israel is still controlling the borders to Gaza which makes it practically impossible to gain entry, according to Swedish News Agency TT.
