Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked on Wednesday took down a video she posted on her Facebook page which she originally thought was footage of African migrants committing acts of violence in south Tel Aviv.

The Bayit Yehudi minister posted the video as part of her criticism of the High Court of Justice decision on Wednesday to water down the so-called "Infiltrators Law" by reducing the period of time in which the state can hold an undocumented alien in detention from 20 months to 12 months.

The decision touched off a storm of criticism, particularly from right-wing circles as well as south Tel Aviv residents who are angry over the influx of African migrants in their neighborhoods.

The video on Shaked's Facebook page turned out to be footage of rioting in Turkey, not in Tel Aviv.
