The last few days witnessed many violent confrontations, the biggest one happened yesterday around Beer Ayoub’s area in Silwan.
A few angry young men threw Molotov’s cocktails towards the settler’s guned guards Jeep, an incident that happened repeatedly, and the Israeli forces tried to invade Hosh Ouda through the alleys of Al- Bustan that is attached to it.
The confrontations began when extremist Israelis celebrated the so-called “United Jerusalem Day” in some streets in Silwan.
The Israeli forces invaded the area, so the local youth stood up against them by shutting the streets through stones and barricades, tens of young men participated in the confrontations, many locals said it was the most violent day for the last few weeks.
Tension was all over the area, especially after the Israeli forces blocked the entrances and allowed the settlers to drive freely while the Palestinians were not allowed to use thier streets.
A settler’s guard jeep tried to provoke a few kids so the young men stood up against them, and as the witnesses said, the violent confrontation continued for hours.
Wadi Hilweh is closed for Palestinians
