Immigrant crime explodes in Tel Aviv


2012 brought a dramatic rise in the number of criminal cases opened against foreign citizens in Tel Aviv and its surroundings: final numbers from Tel Aviv District Police show a 53.2% climb in crimes committed by Eritrean and Sudanese migrants during the year, as opposed to 2011.

Crime statistics were presented Wednesday afternoon in the presence of Internal Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch and Police Commissioner Yohanan Danino.

Tel Aviv District Police are responsible for what is considered the largest metropolis in Israel, with over a million residents and the highest number of reported crimes in the country. Besides Tel Aviv, the district includes Ramat Gan, Givatayim, Bnei Brak, Holon, Bat Yam and other cities.
