About a hundred Sudanese migrants living in the Arab Israeli town of Kfar Manda moved elsewhere on Wednesday following a surge in tensions with locals, Haaretz reported.

The Sudanese were said to have left by agreement after altercations broke out between them and the local population.

According to the report, three Sudanese were reported arrested earlier this week after locals complained about noise coming from an adjacent apartment and violent altercations broke out between dozens of locals and African migrants.

On Wednesday, 15 people were injured when a scuffle broke out between the migrants and locals, with townsfolk reportedly chanting “clear out the foreigners,” according to Ynet news.
