Some 400 protesters swarm onto Kaplan Street, blocking the road temporarily and clashing with police; at least four protesters arrested; some supporters incite against IDF chief, chanting 'Gadi, Gadi beware, Rabin's looking for a friend.'

Some 400 protesters rioted and clashed with police outside the Kirya IDF headquarters in Tel Aviv on Wednesday both before and after Sgt. Elor Azaria was convicted of manslaughter after shooting dead a seriously wounded terrorist in Hebron.  

 

 

At least four of the protesters were arrested for disrupting the peace, with one also being suspected of attacking a police officer.

 

Protesters, some of them masked, included members of the far right-wing Lahava group, Beitar Jerusalem soccer fans, and members of the criminal, soccer fan group La Familia.
