PHOTOS: Right-wing activists, police clash in anti-Arab protest

Israel Police clashed with hundreds of far-right activists in downtown Jerusalem Tuesday night.

The activists arrived in the city to take part in a “revenge protest” in the wake of the murder of the three kidnapped Israelis, and chanted “death to Arabs” as they marched through downtown. Former MK Michael Ben-Ari, Itamar Ben-Gvir and Benzi Gopstein, three well-known Kahanist activists, took part in the protest.

According to Haaretz, the demonstrators attacked five Arabs across the city, and attempted to storm a McDonald’s that they suspected employed Arabs. The police made at least 50 arrests.
