The seven men - all aged between 19 and 31 - were arrested over various public order offences and are due to appear in court on Wednesday morning.
A 15-year-old boy and a 28-year-old man who were also arrested have since been released pending reports to the Public Prosecution Service, police have confirmed.
Four officers suffered minor injuries after missiles were thrown at them during the disorder, which occurred after the earlier Orange Order Somme Commemoration parade had passed off largely peacefully.
Crowds gathered in the Catlereagh Street/Albertbridge Road area, and at Mountpottinger Road.
Community workers from both areas tried to maintain calm, but police were called in and were subsequently attacked with bottles, fireworks and other missiles.
Nine people were arrested.
Sinn Féin councillor Niall Ó Donnghaile praised the efforts of community leaders, but said the Parades Commission must "step up to the mark" with a solution.
"It needs to look at the difference made when another major parade in May this year took an alternative route, away from the Short Strand, which is also a viable option for this parade," he said.
