African Migrant Stabbed in Tel Aviv; Arab Israeli Shot in Jaffa

Police suspect Sudanese migrant was stabbed with bottle in drunken fight; Jaffa man aged in his thirties dies of wounds.

A Sudanese migrant was found stabbed in his head Friday night in south Tel Aviv, in what appears to be the result of a drunken fight among African migrants.

Police said the man appears to have been stabbed with a broken bottle, leaving him lightly wounded. He was found collapsed on the footpath on Salomon Street in south Tel Aviv, near the old central bus station, and evacuated to Ichilov hospital.

Also Friday night, an Arab-Israeli man was shot in the head in Jaffa. He died of his wounds whilst being evacuated to Wolfson Medical Center in Holon.

Police arrived at Aza Street, Jaffa, after having received reports that gunshots were heard. The man is believed to be a resident of Jaffa aged in his thirties.

Police are investigating the circumstances of both cases.
