As YWN published earlier, a massive police presence was at Sha’ar Shechem on Thursday night, and police went on high alert fearing a night of violence. As was anticipated, violent clashes erupted. Dozens of people were injured as Palestinian protesters confronted hundreds of Israelis who marched to the scene.

Police, trying to keep the groups apart, also clashed with the Palestinians, who threw rocks and bottles at the officers.

Officers used riot dispersal means including stun grenades, tear gas and water cannons to break up the Arab protestors, the sounds from the explosions rolling across the center of the capital. ​ At least 100 Palestinians were injured, including 21 who were hospitalized, the Palestinian Red Crescent said.

Meanwhile, a far-right Jewish group known as Lahava led a march of hundreds of protesters chanting “Arabs get out!” toward Damascus Gate. The show of force came in response to multiple videos circulated on TikTok showing Palestinians slapping Charieidm at random. Other videos made in response to them appear to show Jews assaulting Arabs.

By late Thursday night, police appeared to have succeeded in keeping the protesters separated.

  1. There is only 1 known cure to this entire horrendous crisis:- It is know as “Meir Kahane”
    His method must be implemented immediately with absolute alacrity and without any further delay whatsoever:- Expel/deport every single arab from Israel.
    This is the only tenable solution.

  2. It sounds like the Lahava group was looking to start up trouble. Do they really believe the Arabs will listen to their threats? Better to educate Jews and Arabs about Hashem giving the land to the Jewish people.

  3. Where are all the “Chillul Hashem” kanoim on this article? Check out the article about the people in meah shearim who had some sort of run in with an Arab driver there’s no lack of such commentators there. Or any article about meah shearim for that matter. Are Lehavah thugs not subject to the same level of scrutiny as Meah Shearim people?

  4. We all know our shortcomings very well.
    I know it is hard, but we no longer have other options, we need to try to improve and better our ways.
    Just last night I heard 2 people right outside the Shul arguing loudly about masks.
    If we fight with each other than the arabs will win.

  5. Hashem wants to take away the police force from the chariedim he sends them Arabs to protest (based on a commentary of the Chazon Ish)
