Hundreds of Jews dance and sing in the streets of Lod as border police disperse Arab rioters.

Lod Mayor Yair Revivo called Tuesday night for the army to crestore quiet after two straight days of Arab rioting in the mixed Arab-Jewish city that he and other residents labeled a pogrom.

In the wee hours of Wednesday morning, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared a state of emergency in Lod and Defense Minister Benny Gantz ordered Border Police companies into Lod and other mixed Arab-Jewish cities in order to restore order.
