Sheffi Paz, leader of "The South Tel Aviv Liberation Front", was arrested on Saturday night during a demonstration in support of the deportation of illegal infiltrators from Eritrea and Sudan.

The demonstration was a counter-demonstration to one by left-wing protesters who gathered to rally against the government's planned deportation of the infiltrators.

The counter-demonstration was held in memory of Esther Galili, a 70-year-old resident of southern Tel Aviv and a Holocaust survivor who was beaten to death by an illegal migrant eight years ago.

Most Israelis support deporting illegal infiltrators, under a policy which offers those immigrating to third countries before March 30 cash payments of $3,500. The government has reached an agreement with Rwanda to accept those who wish to go there.

Women, children, and illegal immigrants who filed for asylum before January 1, 2018, but have yet to receive a formal ruling on their claims will not have to leave during the first stage of deportations.
