A 33-year-old Lod resident and father of three named Musa Malakh Hassuna was shot dead on Monday night on Hahashmonahim Street in the city of Lod, near a large protest by Arab-Israelis demonstrating in solidarity with Palestinians in east Jerusalem, Israel Police reported. Two more were moderately injured in the incident, including a 20-year-old man. 
Police are currently investigating the circumstances behind the shooting and whether it is connected to the protest.Haaretz reported that police suspect that Hassuna and the others were shot by one of the Jewish residents of the neighborhood, after witnesses reported him and the other participating in the riots.

A resident of the neighborhood, Meir Liush, told Haaretz that “the Arab crowd tried to break into the neighborhood, the police did not arrive for many long minutes.” 
“The residents were forced to shoot in the air in front of a crowd that did not care, until they fired in their direction and wounded two of the rioters,” Liush added.

Video uploaded to social media shows people running toward a vehicle with a Molotov cocktail, and then gunshots are heard.

Israel police in Ramla-Lod reported that 16 demonstrators were arrested on Monday evening during riots in which around 200 youths arrived to protest solidarity with Palestinians in east Jerusalem. Many were seen throwing stones and bottles and launching fireworks at police and buildings, while also burning trash cans and tires.

A video shared on social media showed a demonstrator in Lod on Monday night climbing  a streetlight, taking down an Israeli flag and replacing it with a Palestinian flag.
