Israeli rescue forces were pelted with stones on Wednesday afternoon after helping in an operation to extricate people trapped in a burning building in east Jerusalem, police reported.

Residents were caught on the roof of a five story burning building in the Isawiya neighborhood on Wednesday. In a joint operation of the Israel Police, the Border Police and the Fire Service, the residents were evacuated without injury. 

When the forces were leaving the neighborhood they were pelted with stones and a police cruiser sustained damage. 

The security forces were searching for the suspects.
