No arrests among nationalist marchers, despite misconduct

There were no arrests during scuffles between police and right-wingers who were attempting to reach the Damascus Gate for a nationalist march, according to a police statement summing up the incident.

According to the statement, two people were arrested at Damascus Gate, where hundreds of Palestinians gathered to confront the marchers, one for throwing a bottle and the other for throwing stones. Police distributed a video of them arresting a young Palestinian man after he threw a bottle.

The statement accuses the nationalists of misconduct in their attempts to reach Damascus Gate, but says most turned for Jaffa Gate after police were forced to push them back.
