Police used water cannons Saturday night to disperse more than 100 Arab rioters demonstrating at Jerusalem’s Damascus Gate against recent legislation to resettle Beduin populations into government-sanctioned villages in the southern Negev, police said.

A police spokesperson said the demonstrators began throwing rocks at officers at 6 p.m., forcing them to implement the riot-control measures.

No injuries or arrests were reported, the official said.
