At least 75 people have now been injured in spiraling violence in south Tel Aviv between supporters and opponents of the Eritrean government, as well as clashes with police, the Magen David Adom emergency service says.

Twenty five of those injured were police officers.

The number is expected to rise with clashes continuing at a number of locations.
