    Second firebomb attack in South Tel Aviv

    Two firebombs hit a residence in south Tel Aviv that is home to African asylum seekers. It is the second such incident in the last two weeks. On April 27, firebombs were thrown at four houses of migrants from Sudan and Eritrea in the Shapira neighborhood, as well as at a public park where some migrants sleep. No one was injured in the incident, but some of the structures were damaged. One of the apartments also was used as a day care center. Tensions between Israeli residents and the African migrants have been on the rise in recent months.
