Government legal advisers informed the Supreme Court of the plan's cancellation after certain unspecified countries refused to host the migrants, a government source said.

As a result, "no further decisions on third-country expulsion will be issued at this time", the state said.

The plan to deport thousands of mostly Eritrean and Sudanese men to a third country against their will has been in the works for months, and though the immigration authority will continue to find options to deport asylum seekers voluntarily, they will no longer be deporting them to a third country against their will.

The migrants, it said, will again be able to renew residency permits every 60 days, as they were before the deportation push.

The High Court has demanded the government present a deportation plan that would safely resettle the migrants in a third country, or set them free from detention.

After leaving a UN-backed relocation plan a few weeks ago, Israel shifted efforts towards finalising an arrangement to send the migrants against their will to Uganda. Asylum seekers previously deported to Uganda and Rwanda have told the Times of Israel they faced serious danger and even imprisonment after arriving in Africa without proper documents.

The migrants and rights groups say they are seeking asylum and are fleeing war and persecution.

Many of them settled in a number of poor neighbourhoods in the coastal city of Tel Aviv, the country's economic capital.

On April 2, Netanyahu announced that he reached a deal with the United Nations to resettle the asylum seekers and allow some of them to stay in Israel as refugees only to cancel the deal a day later.
