Police in Haifa have dispersed a rally in support of Palestinians in Gaza that law enforcement says was not authorized and violated public order.

Earlier in the day, police in the northern coastal city announced that it would not allow pro-Palestinian demonstrations that were being planned on social media, after far-right groups said they would intervene to halt them.

During tonight’s unauthorized rally, six protesters were arrested, including three women, and one person was wounded, according to the Arab48 news website.

The police also reportedly dispersed a protest in the Arab Israeli city of Taybeh.
