Tensions over religious freedom have reached a boiling point in Israel, with demonstrators throwing stones and burning cars in what Israel calls a crackdown on religious gatherings.
Demonstrators on Sunday threw rocks at vehicles and broke windows in Tel Aviv and other parts of the country.
The demonstrators took to the streets to demand that the state impose a curfew to prevent demonstrations from spreading.
The police said on Saturday that the rallies had taken place “in violation of a decision by the police commissioner to restrict gatherings in Tel-Aviv.”
Police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld said the rally had been called to “express discontent at a number of religious gatherings that have taken place over the past few days.”
According to Rosenfeld, some of the demonstrations had taken places “on the street” and “outside the Tel Aviv Police headquarters.”
“We cannot allow this to spread,” he said, referring to the “unlawful gatherings” which Rosenfeld called “an affront to the law and the values of the State of Israel.”
Police said that the demonstration was called to protest against the “immoral” and unprovoked attacks on Israeli soldiers during a recent march in the Tel-Avesta area.
The demonstrations also targeted the “disrespectful” way in which police have handled the protests.
On Sunday, a group of protesters hurled stones at police cars and set fire to them, injuring several officers.
Police said two police officers were hurt in the attack.
The demonstration came a day after the police arrested more than 20 people and confiscated the properties of dozens of demonstrators for refusing to leave the area in Tel Aviv’s Bnei Brak neighborhood.
The protests over the weekend came just days after a march of about 50 protesters from across the country marched to Tel Aviv’s main synagogue and chanted, “Cake delivery!” and “The occupation is not Israel, it is the occupation.”
Earlier in the week, dozens of protesters in Tel Azor, a largely Arab neighborhood in the heart of Tel Aviv, also threw stones at Israeli police.
On Monday, demonstrators also attacked a police station in Tel Avesta, where a small group of demonstrators was arrested.
Police also fired tear gas at a demonstration in Tel Homa on Sunday evening.
Earlier in August, demonstrators in Tel Gilboa, a predominantly Arab neighborhood of Tel Avi, threw rocks, bottles and firebombs at police.
