JERUSALEM (Ma’an) – Israeli settlers on Saturday evening stormed the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah and attacked Palestinian residents.

Locals told Ma’an that some 50 settlers stormed the neighborhood and attacked Hani al-Sabbagh and his brother Ahmad beating them after squirting pepper spray at their faces.

The attackers then hurled stones at Palestinian homes before residents clashed with them in the streets.

Israeli forces arrived to protect the attacking settlers. The soldiers, according to witnesses, have beaten Palestinians with clubs and rifle butts injuring a young man Yousif Abu Shush and a girl child.
