Dozens of rightist activists and residents of south Tel Aviv’s Hatikva neighborhood gathered on Monday to protest against African migrants, after it was reported that an Eritrean man raped an elderly woman last week.

The protesters were marching toward the area of Tel Aviv’s central bus station, where an 83-year-old woman was raped in the yard of her apartment building. Police arrested an Eritrean man in his twenties on suspicion of committing the rape.

On Monday, right-wing activists took to the streets to protest the incident, and called for the deportation of Sudanese and Eritrean migrants from Israel.
