A Jerusalem court on Sunday will deliberate the ownership of a home in the Muslim Quarter of the Old City which is being claimed by Jews, police said. A group of Jews affiliated with the right-wing Ateret Cohanim Yeshiva tried to enter the house overnight Thursday, prompting Arabs to gather at the site and police intervention, Jerusalem police spokesman Shmuel Ben-Ruby said. A Jew and an Arab were detained to determine the ownership of the property.
