Israeli police detain settler, seize weapon in Sheikh Jarrah

Jan. 31, 2010 7:27 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 1, 2010 11:14 A.M.)
Jerusalem – Ma’an – Israeli police detained an Israeli settler and confiscated his weapon after he attacked a member of the Al-Ghawi family in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of East Jerusalem on Sunday evening.

Maysoon Al-Ghawi told Ma'an: "Children were playing in the area when a settler came, showed off his weapon, and tried to shoot people who intervene – including police. He was detained and police confiscated his weapon."

The incident came two days after hundreds of Israelis protested in Sheikh Jarrah against what they have termed settler attempts to ethnically cleanse the neighborhood of its Palestinian inhabitants.
