Police clashed with dozens of east Jerusalem residents overnight, after masked Arab men threw rocks and fireworks at security forces in Jabel Mukaber, an Arab neighborhood in the capital.
The Israel Police force was patroling the volatile area when they were attacked with stones by a mob, prompting clashes that resulted in the arrest of a 40-year-old man and two minors.
The three were detained for questioning.
The east Jerusalem man, security officials learned, was released in the Gilad Schalit prisoner swap. Since he was freed in 2011, he has violated the terms of his release and now faces trial in a Jerusalem court.
