There are violent clashes between supporters and opponents of the Eritrean government at a number of locations in south Tel Aviv, Hebrew-language media reports.

Hundreds of police officers have been deployed to the city to reinforce the cops already on the streets.

According to reports, police are using smoke and stun grenades as they attempt to separate and disperse the clashing groups.

The violence initially broke out between police and Asmara regime opponents near a venue that was set to host an event organized by the Eritrean embassy.

A community organizer told the Haaretz newspaper that activists had warned police that the situation could turn violent, but their pleas were ignored.
