Police are calling the attacks “botched robberies”; three arrested in connection to the crimes.

Three African migrants were stabbed and lightly wounded at three locations in south Tel Aviv on Saturday night, in what police say were botched robberies.
Within an hour or so of the stabbings on Rosh Pina, Lewinsky, and Solomon streets near the Central Bus Station, police announced that they had arrested three Israelis in connection to the crimes.

Police said that the three men did not know the victims and that the motive for the crimes was robbery.

In early January an Israeli man was arrested for stabbing an Eritrean infant in the headwith a pair of scissors near the Central Bus Station. The man was inebriated at the time and mentally disturbed, police said, adding that he did not know the victim personally.
While under investigation the man told police that he carried out the stabbing for racial reasons, because he hates black people, who he referred to as “black terrorists.”
Over the past couple of years there have been other cases of groups of Israeli youths in south Tel Aviv, in Eilat, and elsewhere who targeted African migrants for beatings and robberies.
In a number of those cases police said the perpetrators targeted African migrants solely out of opportunism, while in other cases there was a racial motive as well.

    When thugs and bullies attack you, the only way to stop them is if you stand your ground and fight back. That is what Somalians do. Eritreans should stop being cowards and learn to stand up for themselves.

    The reason Israel govt is covering up for the crimes against Eritreans is obvious. Members of the govt and the rabbis are responsible for the hate campaign against immigrants that agitated people to take aggressive actions. The government cover-up is to hide the truth from the rest of the world. The Eritrean lawyers should consider filing law suits against the govt of Israel in Geneva for the crimes. The hate campaign observed in Israel is similar to what took place in Rwanda leading to the genocide.

    You don’t need to be in kunat to stand up for yourself, bullies are everywhere even your husband can bully you. You just have to stand your ground if you want the bullying to stop. This is not a rocket science just a common sense.
