3 Arrested in Chareidi-Arab Rock Fight

Three people were hurt in a confrontation that took place Saturday evening between hareidi Jews and Arabs, in the Ramat Shlomo neighborhood of Jerusalem.

According to initial reports, the confrontation began when hareidim threw rocks at the Arab Shuafat neighborhood, for an unknown reason. One person was slightly hurt in the head and required medical assistance.

In response, Arab youths hurled rocks at cars driven by Jews. Two hareidi Jews were slightly hurt and three cars were damaged.

Police and Border Police forces arrested three hareidim, one of them a 16-year-old minor and the other two adults. The minor resisted arrest and lightly wounded a female Border Police officer in the face.

“About 20 Jews of the ultra-Orthodox neighborhood of Ramat Shlomo, which adjoins Shuafat, threw stones at Palestinian homes, slightly injuring the head of a resident of the camp,” police spokeswoman Luba Samri told AFP. Three stonethrowers were arrested, she added. “The Palestinians threw stones back in retaliation and slightly injured two Jews,” Samri said.
