Just 10% of those arrested over riots in Jewish-Arab cities are Jews — report

Only 10% of Israelis arrested over raging inter-communal violence in recent weeks in mixed cities have been Jewish, while the vast majority are Arabs, Channel 12 news reports.

The network says police have made 1,552 arrests over the riots, of whom 1,039 have since been released.

Only 168 of them are Jews, showing that the violence was primarily carried out by Arabs — or, alternatively, that police are more likely to arrest Arab suspects.
