Fresh clashes at East Jerusalem flashpoint; 20 Palestinians, 1 Israeli wounded
After the protesters attacked a Jewish home, residents responded with rocks and pepper spray and a brawl broke out.
Police then used riot dispersal means, including batons, tear gas, “skunk” water cannons and sponge-tipped bullets.
Palestinians and members of the international community accuse Israel of seeking to “Judaize” East Jerusalem by slowly evicting hundreds of families and replacing them with Jewish ones. Israel maintains that East Jerusalem is a part of its undivided capital and that the Jews moving into neighborhoods there do so legally.
