On January 28th, 2018, the office of the Tel Aviv Population, Immigration and Border Authority (PIBA) was vandalized in protest against the expulsion of African migrants.
A number of severed doll heads covered with red paint were found outside the Tel Aviv PIBA office. Among the doll heads and the red paint were typed notes stating ‘their blood is in your hands. this is just the beginning’.
Last month, the Knesset (Israeli Parliament) approved an amendment to the so-called ‘Infiltrator’s Law’, which paves the way for the forced deportations of Eritrean and Sudanese migrants and asylum seekers from March, as well as imprisonment for an indefinite period for those who refuse to leave ‘voluntarily’.
