Police Say Hundreds Arrested as Riots Break Out in Several Israeli Cities

The Israel Police said hundreds of people were arrested between May 11 and 12 amid riots and disturbances in several Israeli cities with mixed Jewish and Arab populations.

This footage, released by police on May 12, shows officers responding to the unrest. The footage was filmed in Acre, Umm al-Fahm, and Haifa, police said.

Riots prompted officials to declare a state of emergency in one city, Lod, where three synagogues and dozens of cars were set on fire, according to reports.

The unrest came as hundreds of rockets fired into Israel from Gaza left at least six dead, and Israeli strikes on the Strip killed at least 43, according to local health officials. Credit: Israel Police via Storyful
