Israeli police attacked Palestinian protesters in Sheikh Jarrah | International News Middle East News
Israeli police used stun grenades and sprayed skunk water on Palestinians during the tension in the Sheikh Jarrah area of ??occupied East Jerusalem.
Earlier in the evening, there was a clash between Jewish settlers and Palestinians. Israeli media reported that chairs and stones were thrown between the two sides.
The Palestine Red Crescent Society said that 20 Palestinians were injured in the fighting, and there were reports of several arrests.
Later on Monday, Israeli police could be seen raided Palestinian houses and threw stun grenades at residents.
Sheikh Jarrah has been a place where Israeli police frequently suppressed Palestinians, who protested threats to deport dozens of Palestinian families in support of hardline Israeli settler groups.
Israel called it a “real estate dispute,” while Palestinians and human rights organizations said the case highlighted discriminatory policies aimed at driving Palestinians out of Jerusalem.
