Israeli colonizers who originally come from Ethiopia decry alleged police racism from other white Zionists

At least 13 people injured in Jerusalem as protesters angered by filmed beating of Ethiopian soldier clash with police.

Clashes have broken out in Jerusalem as more than 1,000 Ethiopian Israelis staged a protest, demanding an investigation into alleged police racism and violence.

At least 13 people were injured and two police officers and five protesters were taken to hospital, the Magen David Adom ambulance service said after protests on Thursday.

Police said the crowd hurled stones and bottles, with police using anti-riot measures to keep them at bay, including tear gas and stun grenades.

The protests reportedly started outside the city's police headquarters with demonstrators blocking off one of the city's main traffic arteries and the light rail service.

Protesters waved banners reading: "Stop police brutality, stop racism" and "Today it's him, tomorrow it's you!"

They then marched towards the residence of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, where they also blocked the road before being stopped by a large number of police equipped with water cannon.

"Enough of racism!" they chanted, some of them waving Israeli flags, others holding up the Ethiopian flag. "In Europe they kill Jews because they're Jews, here they kill Jews for being black," read one placard.
