Fear of violent clashes in rightists' march realized: Deputy Police Commissioner Shahar Ayalon was lightly injured Tuesday morning by stones hurled during a right-wing activists' march in the northern Arab town of Umm al-Fahm. Another senior officer and a policeman were also lightly wounded.
Knesset Member Ilan Ghilon (Meretz), who was also present in the area, was hurt by tear gas fired by the police. In total, 16 people were injured in Tuesday morning's events, all of them sustaining light wounds.
Hundreds of police officers deployed Tuesday morning in the northern Arab town of Umm al-Fahm and its surroundings, as well as on the Wadi Ara road, as right-wing activists held a protest march in the city.
The rightists were greeted by the city's residents and several left-wing activists, who threw stones at the marchers. Residents standing on rooftops waved shoes and cursed the marching activists.
The police used tear gas and shock grenades against the protestors on both sides in a bid to prevent an escalation. The parade ended about half an hour later, and its participants returned to their buses.
