10 protesters arrested at Nazareth rally

Ten protesters have been arrested at a demonstration in Nazareth against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s visit to the Arab Israeli city, according to police.

Channel 12 says three Joint List lawmakers, Mtanes Shehadeh, Sondos Saleh, and Heba Yazbak, were escorted away from the rally in a breach of their parliamentary immunity.

Eyewitnesses say 200-300 people took part in the demonstration.
