Arabs Riot in Jaffa After Resident Arrested for Violating Quarantine Regulations
JNS.org – Arab residents of Jaffa rioted on Wednesday, burning tires and dumpsters because the police were enforcing nationwide quarantine restrictions to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
During a patrol of the Ajami neighborhood, police saw two men standing together and asked to see identification to check if they were outside the 100-meter limit from their homes, according to a report by Ynet.
The young man refused the order, and other residents began surrounding the officers to help the man escape. Police called for backup; shortly after, clashes began.
Police officers made four additional arrests.
