    Monday, November 10: Israeli police kidnapped at least 58
    Palestinians, including 10 children, in Kafr Kanna and Tur'an, in
    the Galilee, and in several other towns during overnight clashes,
    while the situation continues to deteriorate since the fatal
    shooting of Kheir Hamdan, age 22, late on Friday.

Arabs48 news website has reported that police arrested overnight 33 
Palestinians, including 10 children in Kafr Kanna village, three in 
Tur'an village, four from Wadi 'Ara and Um al-Fahem, and three from Tayibe.

They were taken prisoner during clashes which took place with Israeli 
police after they surrounded and invaded towns involved with the general 
strike, in protest of the murder of Hamdan.

The District Court in Nazareth ordered the release of seven 
Palestinians, including three who were forced to pay fines and received 
a conditional release; all were taken prisoner Saturday.

The District Courts in Nazareth and Tiberius will also be looking into 
the cases of 27 more Palestinians, especially since the police are 
demanding that they be detained for further interrogation.

The Israeli police said they arrested more than 30 Arab protesters for 
"causing violence" and rioting in the streets of their towns.

Arabs48 said that most of the clashes took place in Kafr Kanna, the 
hometown of Hamdan, and that police completely sealed the village.
Dozens of local youth hurled stones at the police while they invaded 
their village; police sprayed them with water, firing both gas bombs and 
concussion grenades at them, as well.

Clashes also continued in Um al-Fahem while police arrested, late on 
Sunday evening, at least four youngsters. Three more were taken prisoner 
in Wadi 'Ara during similar protests and clashes.

Overnight clashes also took place in al- Fureidis village, while many 
local youth threw stones and Molotov cocktails at police and army 
vehicles after the soldiers assaulted them, amidst the firing of gas 
bombs and concussion grenades.

On Sunday evening, dozens of residents protested in Tayibe, while 
several youth chased an Israeli extremist who managed to run away, 
leaving his car behind before locals torched it. Police also arrested 
three residents, including a 15-year-old child.

In Shfa-Amr, hundreds of Palestinians protested in the center of the 
town, as police fired dozens of gas bombs at them.

Israeli police said, Monday, that some protesters threw Molotov 
cocktails at Israeli buses, in the Northern Triangle area, causing 
damage but no injuries.

Police added that the protesters threw stones at buses near the Baqa 
al-Gharbiyya Junction, Um al-Fahem junction and Wadi 'Ara junction.
Hundreds also held protests in 'Akka, Haifa, Kafr Manda and Rahat amidst 
extensive police presence.

A general strike was held Sunday in every Arab village and town.
