Watch: Arabs Rally in Support of Terror – in Lod
At least five Arab demonstrators were arrested in the central Israeli city of Lod, after holding an illegal demonstration praising recent terrorist attacks against Israel, during which Palestinian Authority flags were unfurled.
At one point during the demonstration Arabs attacked police hurling rocks and bottles at them, while chanting anti-Israel slogans.
Two soldiers who were lightly injured in the attack were taken to Jerusalem’s Shaarei Tzedek hospital for treatment.
In response, Jewish residents of the mixed city held a vigil against terrorism opposite the protest.
It comes after a day of terrorist attacks targeting Jewish Israelis throughout the country.
