Clashes erupted Wednesday between Palestinians and Israeli security forces in the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat, the home of the Palestinian motorist who carried out a deadly terror attack at the capital's light rail earlier in the day.

Hamas operative Ibrahim al-Acri, 38, killed one person and injured 14 others when he rammed his car into pedestrians at two locations along the light rail tracks at around noon on Wednesday.
