There was an increased presence of deployed, active Jerusalem district police officers as well as Border Police officers throughout Jerusalem and particularly in east Jerusalem on Sunday evening according to a statement from the Israel Police Spokesperson's Unit.
The increased police presence is a direct response to the recent uptick in terror attacks in Jerusalem; specifically, the two most recent attacks which took place within 24 hours of each other on Friday and Saturday.
The forces are working to disperse potential rioters and those already becoming violent in various locations throughout Jerusalem.
On Sunday evening, a disturbance began in the Jebl Mukaber neighborhood in Jerusalem in which dozens of masked people, threw stones and shot firecrackers at the forces operating there, according to the Police Spokesperson's Unit.
Border Police forces responded with riot dispersal measures and one Border Police officer who felt particularly endangered fired a warning shot into the air. There are no known injuries at the scene.
In the area of the Beit Hanina intersection, a disturbance developed in which a number of masked individuals set garbage cans on fire and threw stones at the police officers, who used riot dispersal methods to combat the unrest. Police officers and Border Police forces arrested 6 suspects on suspicion of involvement in the riots at the Beit Hanina intersection.
Five held for questioning earlier on Sunday
The Shin Bet and the police on Sunday afternoon announced that out of the dozens of Palestinians arrested in connection with the terror attack in Neve Yaakov on Friday, five Palestinians are being held and questioned for a more extended period, at minimum until the middle of this coming week.
Among the five are two family members of the terrorist as well as three non-family members, including one Palestinian who was only arrested on Sunday.
Regarding the 13-year-old terrorist killer, his detention has been extended until at least the end of this week, pending an overwhelmingly likely indictment and three of his family members have been arrested and their detentions are expected to be extended later on Sunday.
