'Death to Arabs': Chaos erupts in Jerusalem after far-right march

Hundreds of far-right and anti-Palestinian activists took to the streets in Jerusalem's Old City on Thursday chanting "Death to Arabs" as they protested through the city centre.

The march, led by Lehava, a far-right Israeli group, was organised as a call to "restore Jewish dignity" in Jerusalem.

It came after a week of increased violent assaults against Palestinian citizens of Israel in the Old City.

Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported that the uptick in anti-Palestinian violence began after a video was posted to TikTok of an ultra-Orthodox Jewish man being slapped - seemingly at random - on Jerusalem's light rail train.

Two 17-year-old Palestinians were subsequently arrested in relation to the incident.
