93 east Jerusalem Arabs held for rioting since start of Gaza operation

93 Arab residents of east Jerusalem have been arrested for rioting in the city since the start of the Israeli offensive operation against Hamas in Gaza, police said Tuesday. The four-day old protests appeared to be ebbing on Tuesday, with only one peaceful demonstration reported in east Jerusalem by late-afternoon. The suspects detained for alleging participating in the violent protests - during which both stones and firebombs were hurled at police - included both minors and adults, the police said. About two dozen police officers were lightly wounded in the clashes.
