Shortly after a border policeman was moderately wounded on Monday afternoon when he was stabbed in northern Jerusalem near the Shuafat refugee camp, Palestinians hurled rocks at security forces in the area, leaving a policeman lightly hurt. The border policeman, who had boarded a Palestinian bus to inspect it, was attacked by one of the passengers. He was evacuated to Jerusalem's Hadassah-University Hospital in Ein Kerem. Israel Radio reported that the knife was still lodged in the police officer's neck when he was rushed into surgery fully conscious. The assailant, a young Palestinian from Anata, was arrested. Later in the evening, a policeman was lightly wounded after Palestinians threw rocks at security forces by the Shuafat checkpoint. The roadblock itself was also hit with stones, but there was no damage. Police arrested seven men suspected of stone-hurling and assaulting security forces, and dispersed the crowd using riot gear. Rioting continued in east Jerusalem intermittently on Monday.
