Israel: Communal violence erupts between Jewish and Arab Israelis in several cities

Telegraph, 13 May 2021

Israeli police clashed with Arab protesters in the northern town of Jisr al-Zarqa and Jewish and Arab residents in Lod came to blows despite a rare night-time curfew imposed by police in an attempt to stop the ongoing riots.
