by Aryeh Savir / Tazpit News Agency
Arabs from Isawiya in east Jerusalem rioted near the Har Hatsofim Hospital, on Mt. Scopus earlier today. The rioters threw stones at security forces, blocked the road and shot fireworks at the hospital compound. A spokesperson for the Israeli Border Police stated that their personnel on site kept the rioters away, opened the blocked road and responded with crowd dispersal ordnance against the rioters.
Additionally, Arabs from the village of Jenya blocked a road and threw stones at cars on the road leading to the Talmonim block in the Benyamin region. Cars were damaged. No injuries were reported. The road was later reopened by security forces.
In another incident, a group of some 20 anti-Israel activists demonstrated outside a military base near Beit El. Eight of them tried to scale the fence and infiltrate the base. IDF forces dispersed the demonstrators. Those who tried to enter the base forcefully were arrested by the police.
