Clashes broke out Tuesday night in Jaffa between police and Israeli Arab protesters demonstrating in solidarity with the Palestinians in light of recent escalations.
Demonstrators hurled stones toward parked vehicles and police officers during the unsanctioned protest. Various demonstrators attempted to cordon off streets using torched trash bind and tires in southern Tel Aviv's port city.
Three police were lightly hurt by stone throwers, and two rioters were arrested for assaulting police.
Although the demonstration took place without a permit, law enforcement officials said they permitted the march.
By 10 p.m. the protests were mainly centered outside a local eatery in Jaffa, after protesters had been blocking off main roadways for over an hour.
