Israel reports continued fighting in Acre; Two homes set on fire

Oct. 11, 2008 11:23 A.M. (Updated: Oct. 11, 2008 11:23 A.M.)
Bethlehem - Ma'an/Agencies - Israeli police have reported quelling a handful of clashes between Arab and Jewish residents of the coastal Israeli city of Acre on Saturday.

Reports say the homes of two Palestinian famillies in the city were set on fire during the escalating tension.

Fighting began on Thursday when a Palestinian drove through an area of Acre observing the 25-hour Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) fast. The man was injured by stone throwers and the incident sparked a riot when more youths from both sides arrived on the scene.

Fighting continued on Friday, though Israeli radio said police were able to restore calm to the city.

On Saturday, several reports of small skirmishes were published by Israeli media sources.
