The riots last night (Saturday) in South Tel Aviv, between supporters and opponents of the Eritrean regime, left close to 200 people injured when rocks and scooters were thrown at businesses in the area, causing extensive damage to equipment worth hundreds of thousands of shekels. Today (Sunday) , in an interview, Erez, the owner of "Super-Super" in the southern part of the city, describes the situation in the area: "What's happening here is like Sodom and Gomorrah; no one takes us seriously."

Erez, the owner of the supermarket, began describing last night's events: "They called us yesterday at half-past ten, after there was a riot here, and it was impossible to approach. Only at 12 o'clock did we manage to arrive, after they had broken all the windows on the street. We've been warning about these dangers for two years now. Five months ago, they came and broke all the air conditioners here, and to this day, we haven't received any money from the insurance companies.

"What's happening here is like Sodom and Gomorrah. No one takes us seriously, even though the municipality collects signage tax, property tax, and every other tax from us. But there's no security here. If this had happened in the center or north of Tel Aviv, it simply wouldn't have happened. There, they have plenty of inspectors, city security, and more. Here, it's a different country, we've lost security, and that's what we've been warning about for two years."

The supermarket owner: "There are thefts all the time in south Tel Aviv"

To the question of whether they feel abandoned, Erez responded: "We pay all our taxes regularly, even during the days of the coronavirus, but there's no one to talk to. There's no supervision, no police, and no city inspectors. There are only drug addicts asking people for money, homeless people sleeping on the benches, and no one to talk to. We've lost it."

When asked if there's concern it will affect the business, Erez replied: "Certainly, it's already affecting the business. We've hired two employees who guard from 1:00 PM because there are thefts of products here all the time. It's the courts that do nothing; they bring a person who stole and robbed, and they do nothing to him, they just release him."

"The courts are the worst. What interests us isn't the Clause of Reasonability, but that they put the thief in prison for five or ten years and don't release him the next day."
