Israel Police forces arrested 13 members of the Abu-Saluq clan in Lod on Tuesday, after a bystander was killed and three people wounded in an altercation between two rival families over the weekend.

The latest spasm of violence Saturday was a fight by rival clans over the right to pray in one of the city's mosques, police said. This is the fourth case of violence between the Azbarja and the Abu-Saluq clans this year.

Police say the Abu-Saluqs claim to own the mosque, and they control who enters. In a raid on the Abu-Salaq family compound early Tuesday, special police forces confiscated five handguns, as well as ammunition, a number of rifles
