Several Jewish gravestones at the cemetery on the Mount of Olives were found desecrated Friday afternoon, hours after a Palestinian man from East Jerusalem’s Ras al-Amud, which is adjacent to the site, injured five people in a car attack.

It is not clear if the two incidents were connected but police said there would be “zero tolerance” for any attempts of public disturbances.
