Israeli settler 'shoots at Palestinians' in East Jerusalem

July 8, 2014 10:34 P.M. (Updated: July 9, 2014 11:35 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- An Israeli settler opened fire at a group of Palestinians in East Jerusalem late Monday, witnesses said.

Witnesses told Ma'an that a settler from Nof Zion settlement near the Jabal al-Mukabbir neighborhood shot at a group of Palestinian youths while they were standing in front of a grocery store.

While shooting, the settler shouted at the Palestinians to "leave," locals said.

Israelis also "formed a chain at the entrance of the neighborhood from both sides, and some were armed."

Witnesses said police arrived at the scene and dispersed the Israelis.

A number of Palestinians went to the Jabal al-Mukabbir police station to report the incident.

An Israeli police spokesman did not answer calls seeking information.
