Saddam's sons in Israel?

YNet reports on a family of infiltrators via the Egyptian border who turned out not to be Sudanese (as is usually the case) but Iraqi:
A recent family of infiltrators seeking a safe haven in Israel caused several officials in the Foreign Ministry to stand up and takes notice. Officials were surprised to discover that two of the children are named Uday and Qusay, after the sons of former Iraqi Dictator Saddam Hussein.

The family, which consists of the two parents and their six children, recently infiltrated Israel through the Israeli-Egyptian border.

The family then arrived at the offices of the Interior Ministry and applied for refuge status, claiming they were from the war-torn region of the Sudan.

Suspicions were raised when it was discovered that two of the children, ages 12 and 13, were named after the sons of Saddam Hussein. After a short inquiry it was discovered that family members were not refugees from the Sudan, but rather, Iraqi citizens.
The article does not say whether they were deported or to where they were deported.

But this is shades of the 1920's and 1930's when according to British archives cited by Joan Peters, the people now known as 'Palestinians' stole their way into Israel as 'refugees.'
