On the next day of the most important skirmishes in recent years in the Holy City which raise fears of a new escalation of violence, new scenes of clashes took place on Saturday evening between Israeli police and Palestinian demonstrators in Jerusalem. More than 90 people were injured.
“There were 90 injured in violent clashes” in Jerusalem, said the Palestinian Red Crescent, revising up a previous toll of fifty wounded. According to these rescuers, most of these people, including minors, were injured by impacts from rubber bullets or stun grenades. Israeli security forces also used a putrid water cannon to disperse Palestinians, some of whom threw projectiles at the police during these clashes in various areas of East Jerusalem.
Rocket launched from Gaza
Friday night, clashes on the Esplanade des Mosques – third holiest site in Islam, also called Temple Mount by the Jews – between Israeli and Palestinian police officers had injured more than 200, the biggest clashes in the Holy City in recent years.
Early this Sunday morning, a rocket was launched from Gaza “into Israeli territory,” the Israeli army said, adding that its air force responded by hitting “a Hamas military post” in the southern Gaza Strip, where two million people live.
