Latest update : 2014-07-06

Protests organised by Arab youths have spread across Israeli cities since last week’s suspected revenge killing of a Palestinian teen in East Jerusalem. FRANCE 24 spoke to residents of Qalanswah, where town elders are trying to defuse tensions.

Police used tear gas and stun grenades on Friday to disperse dozens of protesters who organized a rally in memory of slain 16-year-old Mohammed Abu Khdeir in Qalanswah, northeast of Tel Aviv.

The majority-Arab Israeli city is among several where police have cracked down and made dozens of arrests over the weekend.

In an effort to defuse a potentially explosive situation, the city’s mayor and Arab community leaders have called on families to keep the peace.

Nearby, Jewish residents are worried that what have been largely peaceful protests could turn into violent attacks.
