Arab Israelis protest across country, several clash with cops

Arab Israelis have renewed protests in cities and towns across Israel on Monday evening. Some of the protests turn into clashes with police, leading to at least 15 arrests.

Arab Israelis have been protesting Israeli policies and actions in Jerusalem, specifically what they deem aggression against the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Clashes between Israeli police and Palestinians at the flashpoint holy site left hundreds wounded today.

Thousands demonstrate in Nazareth, Haifa, Shfaram, Segev Shalom and in smaller towns such as Eksal, Kafr Manda, and Nahaf. In Nazareth, some demonstrators shot fireworks; in Haifa, others burned trash cans.

According to police, demonstrators threw rocks, launched fireworks, and hurled bottles at the various demonstrations.

In Kafr Kanna, a Jewish Israeli who entered the town was “violently attacked” by some residents before others ushered him away.

A video shows him being hustled away as a man attempts to kick him.

His car was damaged, the Kan Public Broadcaster reported, based on a video circulating on social media.

Initial reports also indicated serious unrest in Ramle and Lod, including stone-throwing at local buses.
