Classes will be cancelled on Sunday in local Abu Snan schools, as per a recommendation made by the Coastal District police after a brawl between Druse and Muslims in the Galilee village Friday night spun out of control.

One person remains critically injured and eight others badly wounded, according to medical officials who said dozens of the wounded were suffering from shrapnel wounds and lacerations, leading to suspicion that a fragmentation grenade was thrown during the brawl.

Police at the moment are linking the violence to tension over recent violence between Arabs and the police and army in Israel, in particular the killing last Friday night of a Kafr Kana man by police.
