Thousands of Israeli-Arabs joined a protest march in Saknin on Saturday, commemorating the eleventh anniversary of the events of October 2000, in which 13 Israeli-Arabs were killed by security forces during riots in the North.

Among those taking part in the march were MKs Ahmed Tibi (United Arab List-Ta'al) and Haneen Zoabi (Balad).

The procession was expected to wind through the northern city of Saknin before ending in the local cemetery, where a rally consisting of speeches was scheduled to take place.
