At least 114 people have been injured in the violence in Tel Aviv between Eritrean asylum seekers and police, Magen David Adom says.

Eight of the injured are in serious condition, 13 are moderately wounded and 93 lightly hurt.

Thirty of the wounded are police officers.

At least 11 of the wounded were injured by gunfire, according to Ichilov Hosptial.

Police said three of the gunfire wounds were caused by law enforcement officers opening fire when they felt their lives were in danger.

Asylum seekers from Eritrea protesting against the Asmara government clashed with regime supporters and police in the coastal city after a demonstration turned violent.

Videos posted to social media showed rioters committing acts of violence and vandalism.
