Tens of thousands of Eritreans have made their way illegally to Israel seeking asylum.  Some support the government in Eritrea while others oppose it.  Clashes between these two groups broke out last week in Tel Aviv during an event organized by the Eritrean embassy to celebrate 30 years of independence from Ethiopia.  Consequently, Israel called for the deportation of all unauthorized immigrants from the country.
