Dozens of Cops Injured in Eritrean Riots in Tel Aviv


At least 140 people, including 30 police officers, were injured in the clashes between Eritreans who oppose and support the regime in their home country.

The riots began with a gathering outside the site of a planned event sponsored by the Embassy of Eritrea in Israel, aiming to prevent the affair from taking place.

The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) said in its statement that Sunday’s meeting is being held “to examine measures to be taken against illegal infiltrators who took part in the disturbances, including steps toward deportation.”

Police reported at least 39 arrests during the riot. Eight people were seriously injured and 13 more were reported in fair condition from the violence.
