Violent riot starts in refugee camp amid routine Border Police activity

Routine Border Police and Special Patrol Unit (Yasam) activity in the Shuafat refugee camp in East Jerusalem on Tuesday quickly turned into a riot during which rocks were thrown at the officers. 
Fireworks were also fired at the forces while they were trying to arrest seven suspects involved in the rock throwing. 
A local resident who first refused to comply with officers' instructions and then tried to assault them with a pepper spray, was apprehended.
