After Lod violence, Israeli city’s residents fear for the future

Mixed cities of Arabs and Jews remain tense in Israel after some of the worst civil unrest in the country’s history erupted in May.

As tensions increased in Jerusalem and fighting broke out with Palestinian militants in Gaza, mobs from both communities attacked passers-by, destroyed property and desecrated religious sites.

It aroused fear of civil war. In Lod, a Palestinian citizen of Israel was shot dead and a Jewish Israeli was killed when a stone was thrown at his car.

The BBC spoke to two women who live on either side of the divide in Lod about the situation in their city.
