Hassan Hamid Al-Baldawi :In the occupied city of Lod, 70 actresses, Taish, disappear in a few days. This is how the French newspaper Liberation led by saying that the Jews and the Palestinians lived well together and with mutual respect until the escalation in recent days. A third of the city's 80,000 inhabitants are Palestine under occupation control, and part of themexpressed their opposition to the evacuation of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, which is the third holiest site in Islam, which resulted in the injury of 500 people, the newspaper notes.

With the aggravation of the economic crisis due to the Corona pandemic, and the absence of the prospects and recent tensions during the month of Ramadan, the anger of Palestinian youth in Lod is directed mainly against the newcomers.
Then, Musa Hassouna was hit by a bullet in the shoulder, which then settled in the heart and killed him. This sparked anger in other mixed cities in Israel, such as Haifa, Jaffa, and Acre, where the same problems exist. But the violence in Lod was surprising and generated great fear.
According to the Palestinians, they were provoked by the Jews, and car burning was widespread. Stones and ash remains strewn on the ground with soot spots. The town hall is under attack. Some windows on the ground floor were smashed. Palestinians set fire to a Jewish community center and two synagogues.
This level of tension with the Palestinian population of Israel has not been recorded for twenty years, that is, since the Second Intifada. The mayor of the city expressed his regret over what was happening, saying: "Seventy years of coexistence were destroyed in a few days."
Alongside these societal tensions is the war with Gaza. Israel is carrying out air strikes, targeting military and political cadres, and destroying infrastructure in the Gaza Strip
