Israel on alert after deadly Jerusalem shootings

Sept. 23, 2010 10:56 A.M. (Updated: Sept. 24, 2010 12:35 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma’an) -- Hundreds of Israeli soldiers were deployed across Jerusalem on Thursday as checkpoints were set up in several neighborhoods, on the first day of the Jewish holiday Sukkot.

Police were sent out across the city from the early morning, while dozens of young men remain in the interrogation compound on the border between east and west Jerusalem following their detention during Wednesday clashes.

Checkpoints were set up around the Old City of Jerusalem, as well as in Silwan, where a settler guardkilled two Palestinians Wednesday morning. A thousand-strong funeral procession became violent in the afternoon, as family and friends took the body of 28-year-old Samer Sarhan to be buried and continued for prayer at the Al-Aqsa Mosque in the Old City.

Further military installations were set up in Al-Isawiya, and the Shu'fat refugee camp, where clashes spread after police had quashed unrest in the center of the city by Wednesday evening.
