Police arrested 12 people on suspicion of disturbing the peace.

Earlier on Thursday, unidentified assailants threw stones at the Jerusalem light rail station in Shuafat, just hours after the deadly vehicular terror attack which killed a Jewish infant girl. Jerusalem police vow to step up arrests of rioters in wake of the attack.

There were also reports of Palestinian stone-throwing toward police and Border Police units operating in the Isawiya section of east Jerusalem. Police used crowd-dispersal methods to quell the unrest.

No injuries or damage was reported.

Near the entrance to the Shuafat quarter, a bus carrying soldiers en route to the IDF Central Command base came under a hail of rocks thrown by local Palestinians. There were no injuries reported.

The stone-throwers fled the scene soon after the incident.
