1 policeman hurt in Shoa

A policeman was lightly wounded on Monday after Palestinian youths hurled rocks at Border Police forces near the Shuafat security checkpoint in northern Jerusalem. The policeman was treated at the scene. Police used riot gear to disperse the youths and arrested seven of them for alleged involvement in the rock-hurling and assault of security forces. The roadblock itself was also hit with stones, but there was no damage. Stone-throwing and other forms of rioting continued in east Jerusalem intermittently on Monday.
