Israeli Arab mob on streets in Lod
They've armed themselves too it seems
Lots of cars burning there

And the Arabs are celebrating taking control in Lod
Apparently many Jewish residents are being evacuated. Israeli police reinforcements are on their way there.

Riots hitting Acre and Haifa now.
In case people are missing the significance of the Arab uprising in Lod, raising the Palestinian flag and them taking control there if only temporarily; those Arabs have been Israeli citizens since 1948 essentially and have been included in Israel's core lands
If they are rising up, then anyone can and everyone will; not just Gaza where Hamas and Islamic Jihad are based; but the West Bank with the Fatah party there on shaky legs. Jerusalem, Acre, Haifa, Jaffa. Everywhere.
And there where local leaders are accustomed to appeasing Israel or suing for peace under American mediation, can suddenly find their legitimacy revoked by their own people if they don't join the struggle. This also includes neighboring countries - Lebanon, Jordan in particular.
Egypt is probably stable enough to stay out of this mess and limit its actions to strong language. Syria will go lock-step with Iran as will Hezbollah of course; their actions we can't guess at yet. Perhaps they will make a move if Israel draws forces south to the Gaza Strip and especially the West Bank where it has huge amounts of settlements to protect.

Israeli society itself is divided, and not just along the traditional Muslim-Jewish lines. Much of the Israeli population is liberal and has been making efforts at reaching out to the Israeli Arabs and building a common society with them, and over the past years this has been increasingly successful as the Arabs have reciprocated.
A coalition of Israeli parties, including a couple of Israeli Arab ones, were poised to form a coalition against Netanyahu and depose him at the upcoming elections.
And much of that society is genuinely horrified at how Netanyahu and his party have mobilized ultranationalists and extremists, started evicting Arabs from their homes, and then ordered the police to storm the Al-Aqsa mosque during Ramadan, terrorizing its worshipers in full view of the world. The airstrike that killed several Palestinian kids a few days later didn't help matters. Those Arab homes in East Jerusalem haven't been touched even after Israel took that territory following the Six Day War.
It had the precise effect Netanyahu counted on. At least in the beggining, now that riots are enveloping Israel, he must be realizing that he overplayed his hand.
And now confidence in the Iron Dome system is broken too. Israel has not faced such internal turmoil and a loss of cohesion and moral confidence in a long time, while the Palestinians have not been invigorated to rise up with such fervor for a long time.
Netanyahu will act to mobilize the Jewish population in 'self-defence', and he will succeed, but they themselves know perfectly well that it was their own leader that pounded the beehive.
