Firebombed

Tensions reached a crescendo on June 4, when a Jerusalem apartment building that was home to ten Eritreans was firebombed by an anonymous person. Graffiti sprayed on the walls of the building said: "Get out of the neighborhood." The attack followed a series of similar attacks in an African neighborhood in Tel Aviv.
