Last night, Palestinians, far-right Jewish protesters and Jerusalem police were injured in clashes. The groups face each other in the center of the old city. At least fifty people were arrested on both sides.
Over the past week, tensions in Jerusalem have increased. During Ramadan, many Palestinians came to the old city after sunset and clashed with the police there. It was the same last night. At the same time, hundreds of protesters moved to the old city under the leadership of the far-right Jewish organization Lahava. They shouted slogans like “Arab, go!” And “Death to the Arabs”.
The police set up roadblocks to try to prevent the two groups from meeting. It didn’t work, it was a few hours of collision. Left-wing Jewish protesters also participated in the Lahava march.
Correspondent Ankie Reches reported that more than 100 Palestinians were injured in the conflict and 22 of them have been hospitalized. Some right-wing demonstrators were also injured, as did the police.
The reason for protesting the far-right protesters was originally the images on TikTok, in which Palestinian youths beat and harassed arbitrary Jews.
