Four Arab youths were arrested in east Jerusalem’s Shuafat neighborhood Sunday night for throwing rocks at a light rail train passing through the flashpoint community, which has been embroiled in ongoing violence for months. According to police, Border Patrol officers and undercover units stationed in the area at the time of the attack were able to apprehend the suspects.

No injuries were reported.

Shuafat’s light rail stop was destroyed during July rioting following the revenge slaying of Muhammad Abu-Khdeir by Jewish nationals for the murders of three yeshiva students, costing the Jerusalem Municipality millions of shekels to restore. Since then, the municipality commissioned several miniature drones equipped with infrared cameras to survey the beleaguered area day and night.
