Three demonstrators were arrested at a large protest against the arrest of Kiryat Arba Chief Rabbi Dov Lior outside of the Supreme Court that began around 6:00 pm.

Hundreds of demonstrators massed and blocked the intersection outside of the court. Police arrested one of the demonstrators, and when dozens of demonstrators tried to grab him away from the security forces, they arrested two additional demonstrators. Police used cars and water canons to disperse the protesters. The intersection was reopened to traffic at 7pm.

A total of 9 protesters were arrested in demonstrations across the city.
