Entry to Lod barred, as curfew announced from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m.

Police Commissioner Kobi Shabtai announces that as of 5 p.m., entry to the central Israel city of Lod is prohibited due to the major riots and Jewish-Arab violence in recent days.

A curfew will be in effect from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m. in an attempt to prevent a repeat of previous nights’ scenes of violence.

Residents will be allowed to exit their homes only to receive urgent medical treatment, go to bomb shelters or other vital needs approved by the police.
