Jews abroad who have filed for immigration to Israel are now reconsidering because of “the situation” in the administered territories, according to Uri Gordon, head of the Jewish Agency’s immigration department, Haaretz reported Wednesday.

In addition, some 3,000 of the 6,000 overseas Jewish youths who regularly attend the Jewish Agency’s annual summer camp programs in Israel have not registered this year because of the ongoing disturbances, Haaretz said.
