Following severe Arab riots in Lod Tuesday night and the extremely high tensions in the mixed Jewish-Arab city, the police ordered the city to be closed and imposed a curfew beginning at 8 p.m. and ending at 4 a.m. Thursday morning, APA reports citing JP.

Before the curfew took hold, the police reported clashes between Jewish and Arab residents of the city, which police broke up, and Jewish residents reported Arab rioters threw petrol bombs and stones once again.

The police banned anyone in Lod from leaving their homes after 8 p.m., from being present in any public spaces, and banned anyone from entering the city.
