Palestinian medical sources say at least four Palestinians were killed and more than a hundred were injured when residents of the Gaza Strip on the Israeli border protested for the fourth consecutive Friday, adding that tensions were rising due to police bans on youth gatherings and videos of attacks.
Violence erupted outside an entrance to the Old City on the wall where far-right Jews ended a march, during which participants harassed Palestinians and chanted “Death to the Arabs.”
The region has been in turmoil overnight since the start of Ramadan on April 13, and Palestinians have complained that police were blocking access to the promenade around the walls, a popular gathering place for Palestinians after the end of the daytime Ramadan fast.
We have treated at least 105 people, including about 20 hospitalized said The Palestinian Red Crescent.
20 people were injured and three were taken to hospital said Israeli police.
They said “hundreds of rioters began to disrupt the order with violence, throwing stones and objects at troops stationed near the Old City.”
After posting several videos in Jerusalem in recent days, it was seen that young Arabs were attacking ultra-orthodox Jews, and Jewish extremists took to the streets of Arabs during the night clashes.
On Thursday night, Israel’s extreme-right group Lehava organized a rally in front of the Old City by hundreds of people to protest anti-Jewish violence.
The video on social media showed Palestinians attacking ultra-Orthodox Jews on Friday morning.
More than 50 people were remanded in custody Friday morning, police said.
