The agitation among the capital’s Arab residents is a long way from decreasing. Sunday night and Monday morning, there were once again riots on the Temple Mount, preventing visitors from entering for a few hours. By 9 a.m., 22 people had already been arrested.Police sources say that while, generally speaking, the Arab neighborhoods in the city are in the process of returning to normal, two locations remained sensitive and ready to erupt again at any moment: the Temple Mount and the Shuafat-Beit Hanina neighborhood. Police are also busy trying to prevent incidents between young Jewish hooligans and young Arab residents so as to avoid any further violence.
