Police on Wednesday morning arrested seven suspects from east Jerusalem’s volatile Jabl Mukaber neighborhood for taking part in a riot there one week ago, and threatening two Jewish men who entered the community and had to be rescued by police after seeking shelter.

According to police, the unidentified visitors came to the neighborhood to sell illegal merchandise, but retreated to a local clinic after threats were made against their lives. Police arrived at the scene to escort both men out safely but held them for questioning over the unidentified illegal goods.
