Two firebombs were hurled on Saturday night at a house in south Tel Aviv. No injuries were reported, but police are investigating whether the incident is connected to a similar racist attack ten days ago that targeted African residents.
Last week, a man was arrested on suspicion of throwing Molotov cocktails in the Shapira neighborhood in south Tel Aviv. The first report was received by police at 1 A.M. Slight damage was caused to an exterior wall of the building.

While police and fire services were on their way to the scene, reports were received of two similar incidents nearby. A Molotov cocktail was thrown toward a residential building in the neighborhood and another toward a public park where African migrants stay.
A day later, about 200 people demonstrated in south Tel-Aviv to express solidarity with African asylum seekers living in the area. The demonstrators, carrying signs with anti-racism messages, were met by some area residents whom tore the signs and cursed out the activists.
