Pro-Palestinian rioters clash with police in Jerusalem’s Old City

Pro-Palestinian protesters threw rocks, bottles and fireworks at Israeli border police in Jerusalem’s historic Old City on Tuesday, according to reports.

Eight rioters were arrested amid the violence, which erupted when a man attacked a female soldier during a security check near the Damascus Gate, the Jerusalem Post said.

Dozens of others approached and began rioting, according to Israel Hayom.

The incident erupted during a daylong strike by many Arab residents to show solidarity with the Hamas terror group amid the ongoing Gaza Strip conflict, now in its ninth day, Israel Hayom said.

The soldier wasn’t seriously injured and didn’t need medical treatment, according to the Jerusalem Post.
