Rioting erupted in the Netherlands over the weekend between two African migrant groups that resulted in police cars being torched.

The Associated Press reported that a group of Eritreans that opposes the African country’s government attacked a venue where a group loyal to Eritrea’s government was holding a meeting.

The Hague Municipality spokesman Robin Middel said, “It got seriously out of hand.”

Video of the attack showed dozens of military-aged males rioting, smashing windows, and destroying vehicles as police arrived on scene.

Stones were later thrown at law enforcement officials and there were reports of approximately a dozen police officers and firefighters sustaining injuries.

Police had to use tear gas to disperse the migrants and quell the violence.

“Rioters break into an entrance at the Opera,” a local reporter posted on X. “Windows are broken and attempts are made to enter. The fire brigade has also left again and cannot extinguish the fire.”


The Associated Press highlighted numerous examples of widespread violence that the African migrants from Eritrea have caused, including injuring dozens of police officers at a cultural event in Germany last September; violent riots in Israel last September, and 22 German police officers that were injured in separate attacks at a festival earlier in 2023.
