Five Israeli men, including two minors, were arrested on Tuesday for carrying out a series of violent attacks on African foreigners in south Tel Aviv.

In two of the cases, the victims were in fact Ethiopian Jews, including one who was beaten and robbed of his cellphone in an attack that took place on the night of April 2nd. The victim of that attack was hit in the head and was hospitalized after the incident, though in the rest of the cases the victims were lightly hurt and did not need medical treatment police said.

Altogether, police on Tuesday arrested five youths, including two minors aged 17 and three adults aged 18, 19, and 21. Those four were taken for a remand extension on Tuesday and will stay in custody at least until Thursday. The 18-year-old suspect was arrested on Tuesday evening and will be brought for a remand hearing on Wednesday evening.

None of the suspects are soldiers.
