Clashes continue in different parts of Jerusalem; settlement bus burnt

Clashes resumed, on Thursday evening, in various villages and towns, and in a number of neighborhoods, in occupied Jerusalem, as part of the ongoing protests to the escalating Israeli attacks and invasions into the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Member of the Follow-up Committee in the al-'Eesawiyya town, in Jerusalem, Mohammad Abu al-Hummus, said dozens of soldiers invaded it, and fired many gas bombs and concussion grenades, leading dozens of residents to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.

He added that several trees, located in a land inside a military base near the Hebrew University, were burnt during the clashes.

Clashes also took place in the ash-Shayyah area, in Ras al-'Amoud neighborhood in Silwan, after local youths bunt an Israeli settlement bus.

Israeli daily Haaretz has reported several Palestinians hurled stones on the bus, causing the driver to escape leaving the empty vehicle in the street, before the youths burnt it.

Haaretz added that, on Thursday at night, an Israeli bus driver was injured after stones were hurled on the vehicle, close to the Hizma roadblock, at Jerusalem’s northern entrance. more
