About 30 left-wing activists were detained on Friday afternoon on suspicion of rioting during the weekly demonstration in Jerusalem’s Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood.

Over 250 demonstrators tried to enter the Jewish enclave in the predominantly Arab east Jerusalem neighborhood. However, they were stopped by the police.The demonstration is held every week by left-wing activists and Arab locals in protest of the Jewish presence in the neighborhood.



About 30 protesters were still blocking the street late Friday afternoon, out of about 100 who had sat on the road and linked arms to make it difficult to disperse them, shouting “fascism will not pass.”
