The anti-racist protest which began peacefully earlier on Thursday turned violent in the evening when the protesters began to throw stones and glass bottles at police, the police reported. Two police officers were injured by stones. They were trying to disperse the protest using tear gas.

The protest came following the release of video earlier in the week showing police beating an IDF Ethiopian soldier in Holon.

The Jerusalem municipality said it would not allow the protesters to continue to disturb the peace. 

Channel Two reported that eight protesters were injured in the confrontation with police. The news outlet reported that the demonstrators were attempting to march towards Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's residence.
