Eleven people were arrested at a melee outside the Beitar Jerusalem soccer game on Saturday night against Bnei Sakhnin Football Club.

After the game ended, fans from each team started throwing rocks at each other and at the buses carrying the players.

There were no injuries or damage from the rock throwing. Police arrested 11 fans and quiet was quickly restored to the area. Bnei Sahknin, from the Israeli Arab village of Sakhnin, north of Nazareth, won the game 3-0.
