Fresh violence erupted Thursday evening in several Jewish-Arab cities, a night after some of the worst internal unrest in years, and while intense fighting also continued between Israel and Palestinian terror groups in the Gaza Strip.

Two civilians and a policeman were reported to have been shot by Arab assailants in Lod and Ramle.
In Jaffa, a 19-year-old soldier was in serious condition after being beaten, and was suffering from a skull fracture and a cerebral hemorrhage, Ichilov Medical Center in Tel Aviv said, after he drove himself there.

In Lod, a central city with Jewish and Arab populations that has become an epicenter of the ethnic violence gripping the country, a Jewish paramedic was lightly wounded after being shot. Reports later said a second Jewish man was shot in the city, after an overnight curfew that began at 8 p.m. took effect for a second night in a row.
Arab rioters also torched a synagogue, the fifth in the city to be set alight in the recent violence, according to Channel 12 news.
