Right-wing Jews attack Palestinian vehicles in Jerusalem, injure woman

18:00 Jul 4 2015 near Sheikh Jarrah

JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian woman was injured Saturday evening when right-wing Jews threw stones at Palestinian vehicles in occupied East Jerusalem.

Israeli police spokeswoman Luba al-Samri said in a statement that the incident took place near "the Tomb of Simeon the Just,” a Jewish site of worship in East Jerusalem near Sheikh Jarrah.

She confirmed that a Palestinian woman sustained injuries.

Palestinian youths afterward gathered and clashed with the right-wing Jews.

Police officers arrested a young Palestinian man and two Israelis and held them for questioning.

Tension has been running high in East Jerusalem and the West Bank in the wake of a string of attacks by Palestinians on Israeli military and civilians.

In the occupied West Bank, Israeli settlers carried out retaliatory attacks, throwing stones at Palestinian vehicles and on Tuesday assaulting a 60-year-old Palestinian man.

An average of two Israeli civilians per week have sustained injuries by Palestinians so far in 2015, with two Israelis killed, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

In the same time period, however, an average of 39 Palestinians have been injured by Israeli forces each week, and 15 have been killed.

The number does not include incidents of injury by Israeli settlers on Palestinians in the West Bank.
