Arab Youth in Nazareth Throw Rocks at Police

Thirteen youthful Arab rioters were arrested, Sunday evening, after they threw rocks at police in Nazareth. Nine police were wounded by the stones, all but two of them lightly.

Dozens of Arabs first pelted a patrol car that responded to a call in the Safafra neighborhood. Backups were also attacked. Northern District police commander Roni Attia called the attack on officers doing their duty very serious and said the rioters would be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
