Leave the neighborhood’ — arsonists’ message to Eritrean refugees in Jerusalem

Following recent mob violence against African migrants in Tel Aviv, yesterday morning arsonists attacked Eritrean refugees in their Jerusalem apartment. Haaretz reported that ten of the refugees were trapped inside of the building during the fire, and four sustained injuries from smoke and burns.

The assailants also left a graffiti message to the residents: “leave the neighborhood.”
