Riots are breaking out in several Israeli towns on Tuesday night.
The Mayor of Lod, Israel tonight told the media, “We have completely lost control of the city, and the streets are witnessing a civil war between Arabs and Jews. Residents are being evacuated from their homes.”
Arabs were seen firing automatic weapons at police.
This is getting lost in the news about Israel and Gaza, but there are currently riots taking place in a number of mixed Jewish-Arab cities across Israel, most notably in Lod, just miles from Tel Aviv. Jewish residents are being evacuated by police as synagogues are set on fire.
