'Jewish rioters' attack Arab driver: Israeli media

The incident took place in the town of Bat Yam on Wednesday (May 12) night. The video shows the driver trying to flee in his vehicle before the crowd catches him. He is left bleeding on the ground.

It's one of many Jewish-Arab confrontations within Israeli cities over the past couple of nights, amid intensifying cross-border fire between Israel and militant groups in the Gaza Strip.

A state of emergency has been declared in Lod, near Tel Aviv, after reports that members of Israel's Arab minority had set fire to synagogues and that Jews had stoned cars driven by Arab residents.

Police say the assaults appear to be more by Jews against Arabs.
