Israel’s police on Friday arrested 11 Palestinians, including an Israeli citizen, in anti and anti-Israeli protests in central Jerusalem, police said.
Two protesters were arrested in the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of al-Tur, police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said.
Police said three of the arrested Palestinians were in police custody, while the fourth, a resident of the neighborhood, was being treated for injuries.
Rosenfeld said no injuries were reported in the unrest.
Last month, Israel’s parliament passed a law granting the police the power to arrest protesters.
The law allows police to detain suspects without charge and impose a three-month prison sentence on anyone they deem to be involved in a riot or other public disorder, and it permits the police to search the homes of suspects.
Rights groups say the law violates the right to freedom of expression and assembly, and they have urged Israeli authorities to review the legislation.
