Parts of eastern Jerusalem appear to be under control of Arab anarchists.
Jerusalem police were called to the Arab dominated Shuafat neighborhood in northern Jerusalem Saturday and immediately were violently attacked by local residents.
The fire crew called the police, who then found themselves overwhelmed by the rioters and were forced to retreat, along with the firemen.
The blaze smells like an ambush because when the fireman arrived at the scene, they discovered that the fire had been extinguished. When they stated to investigate why the fire stated, dozens of Arab rioter spat on them, cursed and attacked them violently.
Two police vehicles arrived to arrest the attackers, but the police officers were not prepared for such a large number of attackers. Both the police and firefighters fled the scene.
The fire department said they view the incident as “grave” and noted this is not the first time they have been “greeted” by attackers, often several times in one day.
The department noted that firemen have been injured by attackers in previous incidents.
