Social protests in Israel turned violent Wednesday night, according to the J14Eng Twitter handle, which collects tweets including the #J14 hashtag and translates them into English.

An article posted on Yedidot Achronot’s website at 7:22 Israel time said Tel Aviv police had arrested 20 social demonstrators after the forced eviction of several encampments by city inspectors.

Nearly 4,000 American Jews have signed a petition from the New Israel Fund in support of Israel's social justice movement.

The petition was published Sept. 2 in the International Herald Tribune in advance of the movement's major demonstration on Sept. 3, which brought out 400,000 Israelis in what some say was the largest protest in Israel's history.
