Aid Workers Get Threats for Helping Immigrants

Workers at a Tel Aviv aid organization for refugees, foreign workers and asylum seekers, said they received an anonymous threat on Sunday, in an apparent sign that recent tensions between migrant workers and locals, especially in the city’s south side, continued to increase.

On Saturday, two firebombs were hurled at a house in south Tel Aviv, luckily no one was hurt. Police said it investigates whether the incident is linked to a similar attack two weeks ago that targeted African residents.

On Monday, Mesila, an aid organization located in southern Tel Aviv, said it received a phone call from an unidentified man on the previous day, saying they would be the next firebomb target. Every day, tens of foreign workers, refugees and asylum seekers visit the center to receive humanitarian aid, legal services and more.
