Jews Finally Hit Back When Attacked by Arabs in Jerusalem

One day earlier, a group of Arabs rioted outside the Damascus Gate entrance to the Old City of Jerusalem, hurling rocks at police and civilians.

One Jewish boy was hit in the head and injured by a rock hurled by an Arab; four arrests were made.

One of those arrested by police was a rioter who attacked a police officer.

Earlier in the evening, hareidi-religious Jews fought back when they were attacked by Arabs near the Damascus Gate while returning from prayers at the Western Wall. The ensuing melee ended with the arrival of Israel Police at the scene.
