Hundreds of activists marched in a protest organized by far-right groups in Jerusalem's Sacher Park on Wednesday night.

Security forces arrested four protesters, including a man in possession of a knife during a demonstration at the park organized by the extremist Lehava and La Familia organizations, Israel Radio reported. 

Lehava leader Benzti Gopstein was among those arrested for disturbing the order after demonstrators hurled stones at police and Border Police officers.
