About 1,000 people gathered in south Tel Aviv’s Hatikva neighborhood Wednesday evening to protest against the government’s handling of the flow of African migrants into Israel.

Some of the demonstrators shattered the windshield of a vehicle in which three African migrants were riding. The migrants were not injured.

Police arrested two people suspected of attacking a foreign worker during the protest.

The demonstrators also chased two foreigners but were blocked by police. They also threw two firecrackers at police forces.

Earlier, about 100 demonstrators chased after a leftist who took part in a counter rally. Police officers blocked the protesters path. The rioters hurled glass bottles and sticks at the officers.

According to Israel Police, 17 people were arrested. Fifteen of them were arrested for rioting and assault, while two others were detained for looting a store owned by migrants.

“We stole everything,” one of the youngsters who looted the store said with a smile on his face. “People took whatever they could carry.”
