Palestinians rioted across east Jerusalem on Tuesday, throwing rocks, setting tires and garbage bins ablaze and even using live fire against police forces deployed by the thousands in the capital.
The violence spread from one neighborhood to another.
The rioting erupted in the Muslim quarter of the Old City, along with the east Jerusalem neighborhoods of Wadi Joz, Ras el-Amud, Isawiya, the Shuafat refugee camp and Jebl Mukaber, among other locations.In Wadi Joz, mobs of rioters clashed with mounted police, who rode past smoking trash bins that had been set alight in the neighborhood during the melee.In Ras el-Amud, dozens of Palestinian youths, their faces shrouded in scarves and keffiyehs, repeatedly clashed with security forces throughout the day. The boom of stun grenades could be heard echoing through the neighborhood’s alleyways, even from inside the Old City, which is located across the Kidron Valley from the neighborhood.
Rioting also erupted in Isawiya, in northeast Jerusalem, where dozens of Palestinians hurled rocks and burned tires as they clashed with border patrolmen.
In Jebl Mukaber, in the capital’s southeast, dozens of youths approached a police force that had been deployed nearby and began hurling rocks in their direction. The rock-throwers were soon dispersed by police, and five of them were arrested.
