Demonstrations were held in several Arab cities and towns, including Nazareth, Umm al-Fahm, Shfaram, Tamra, Majdal Krum, and Kfar Qasim.

The Higher Arab Monitoring Committee in Israel said that Arab youth movements are rallying protesters to stage demonstrations in predominantly Arab towns. 

The committee secretariat said it would decide in the coming days on how to proceed.
