RT correspondent reported that Nazareth, one of the largest Palestinian cities in Israel, witnessed protests today, Wednesday, against the visit of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
On the other hand, the “Times of Israel” website quoted eyewitnesses confirming that 200-300 people participated in the demonstration, while Hebrew media reports indicated that at least ten protesters were arrested by the security services.
The Israeli Channel 12 confirmed that among the detainees are three representatives of the Joint List, which has an Arab majority, in the Knesset, namely Mutanas Shehadeh, Sundus Salih and Hiba Yazbek, pointing out that their detention constitutes a violation of their parliamentary immunity.
Netanyahu held a joint press conference with the mayor of Nazareth, Ali Salam, who yesterday expressed his support for the prime minister.
The leader of the Joint List, Ayman Odeh, condemned on his Twitter account Netanyahu’s visit to Nazareth, accusing him of trying to inflame the division among the Arabs of the interior.
