A security guard was lightly hurt by gunfire near Beit Yehonatan, a Jewish-owned building in east Jerusalem’s mostly-Arab Silwan neighborhood, early Monday morning.
The man was hit in the leg when six bullets were fired at the vehicle he was traveling in during a patrol near the building.
He was taken for treatment in the capital’s Sha’are Tzedek Hospital and police were searching for the shooter.
Meanwhile in Jerusalem, dozens of cops and border police officers were
patrolling the Old City and other volatile locations after Palestinian
youths clashed with security forces
on Sunday. Police decided on Monday
that men under 50 years old were not allowed to come pray at the Temple
On Sunday, four security personnel were lightly hurt and seven
Palestinian rioters were arrested. Police were yet to decide whether to
allow Jews and Christians to come to the Western Wall on Monday, as
such a move may prompt more riots.
The riots spilled over from Hebron, where clashes took place most of
last week after Palestinians reacted violently to to government's
decision to include the Cave of the Patriarchs and Rachel's Tomb in the
National Heritage list.On Sunday, defense officials charged that Palestinian
Authority officials headed by Prime Minister Salam Fayyad were
inciting the Palestinians to protest.
