JERUSALEM (Ma’an) -- A settler house was set on fire Friday as Palestinians threw Molotov cocktails at it in the Wad Ar-Rabab area of the Silwan neighborhood in Jerusalem.

Palestinians threw stones and more Molotov cocktails toward the settlers as they attempted to put out the fire, witnesses said.

An Israeli border guard officer suffered burns and was hospitalized, locals said.

Photojournalist Mahmoud Abu Turk was also injured during the clash and taken to hospital. Israeli forces fired tear gas toward Palestinian residents of the area and their homes.

Fakhri Abu Diab, chairman of the Silwan Defense Committee, said forces fired tear gas and rubber bullets.
