More than 2,150 U.S. troops have died in Afghanistan, or because of injuries suffered there, since the U.S.-led invasion of the country in 2001.

Their names have not been released. It is ISAF policy to allow national authorities to identify casualties.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told parliament Tuesday that "the infiltrators who were transferred to the special facility can be in it, or return to their countries."

It was the latest in a series of discriminatory measures targeting the some-60,000 undocumented immigrants from Africa, whom Israel says pose a threat to its Jewish character.
