Protests over Jerusalem tensions spread to Arab communities throughout Israel

Protests over Israel’s response to major rioting on Jerusalem’s Temple Mount last night are held in numerous Arab communities throughout the country.

The demonstrators also express support for Palestinians in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, where several families face evictions from homes claimed by nationalist Jews, according to the Ynet news site.

Some of the protesters block traffic in both directions on a section of Route 65 in northern Israel.
