Police raised its alert in east Jerusalem on Friday night and will remain on high alert on Saturday following an incident where a 20-year-old Jewish Israeli man shot and wounded two Arabs at Jerusalem's Givati parking lot on Friday evening, near Silwan. The casualties, a 40-year-old and a 16-year-old, were lightly to moderately wounded, and evacuated to an east Jerusalem hospital. Police arrested the gunman, and said that during questioning he claimed that he had been attacked by six Arabs from east Jerusalem, and was acting in self defense.
