Late Friday night, however, officers are still present in several places in the capital after protesters dispersed in the city.
This is what duty officer Paw Kaltoft from the Copenhagen Police says at 10 pm.
– We are still present in several areas in Copenhagen, but not as numerous as earlier in the evening, he says.
After the demonstration, many participants searched for Svanemøllen Station on Ydre Østerbro and moved towards the city along Østerbrogade.
The Israeli embassy is located in the embassy district on Lundevangsvej in Hellerup close to Svanemøllen Station.
Train operations were suspended for several hours between Hellerup Station and Svanemøllen due to the unrest, but were resumed only in the evening.
Earlier, duty officer Henrik Stormer stated that approximately 4,000 participants took part in the demonstration at the Israeli embassy.
Of these, 50 to 100 have made a mess by throwing stones and cannon shots at the police and the embassy, the chief of guards said.
The police were present with battle-dressed officers and dogs on Lundevangsvej to quell the unrest. In that connection, three or four officers and two patrol cars were hit by stones.
– However, the officers have not been seriously injured, says Paw Kaltoft.
Once the police work on the streets is over, the investigation begins. So far, three people have been arrested for throwing stones at police.
– But when the riots are over, we start questioning witnesses and collecting video surveillance, so we can hold as many perpetrators as possible responsible, says Paw Kaltoft.
The demonstration was organized in response to the ongoing unrest in Israel and the Palestinian territories.
Israeli military has been bombing targets in the Gaza Strip since Monday, while Palestinian militants have fired rockets at Israel.
Since Monday, at least 122 people have been killed in Gaza and 900 others injured. In Israel, eight people have been killed – six of them civilians.
