Clashes in Jerusalem as Palestinians rally in solidarity with Gaza

JERUSALEM (Ma’an) – Israeli forces on Tuesday night quelled rallies and celebrations across East Jerusalem showing solidarity with the Gaza Strip after a ceasefire agreement was announced.

Witnesses told Ma’an that Palestinians took to the streets in Beit Hanina, Shufat, al-Tur, Shufat refugee camp and al-Isawiya to show solidarity with Gaza.

No sooner did the rallies began when clashes broke out with Israeli troops who quelled the demonstrators using tear gas, stun grenades and rubber-coated bullets. Young Palestinians responded with stones. Dozens were hurt in Shufat camp after the Israeli troops fired tear-gas canisters haphazardly at houses and stores.

In al-Tur, a Palestinian woman, Hala Mahmoud Abu Sbeitan, 50, was hit in the head by a high-velocity tear-gas canister. She was evacuated to hospital for stitches after she suffered a head wound.

In al-Isawiya, hundreds rallied in the streets including elderly people waving Palestinian flags and chanting slogans in support of Gaza and the Palestinian resistance.

Clashes were also reported in the Wadi al-Juz neighborhood near the Old City and Ein al-Louzah in Silwan. Witnesses said Israeli troops fired rubber-coated bullets, tear gas and stun grenades at the Palestinians who responded with stones and empty bottles. Witnesses said Israeli forces hosed foul-smelling chemicals in Wadi al-Juz.
