Riot Scenes In Jerusalem As The Violence Rages On – Dozen People Killed More Than 300 Wounded, Multiple Rockets Launched Towards Central Israel

Israeli authorities faced more violence last night after a recent spate of shootings and as tensions soar over the threatened eviction of dozens of Palestinians from East Jerusalem.

Israeli troops shot and killed two Palestinians and seriously wounded a third after they opened fire with makeshift submachine guns on a base in the occupied West Bank on Friday morning, Israel’s police said.

That came two days after Israeli student Yehuda Guetta, 19, died in a hospital from injuries sustained in a drive-by shooting Sunday as he was standing at a bus station near the West Bank city of Nablus. Two other teenagers were wounded in the attack. Israeli forces arrested a Palestinian man in connection with the attack Thursday.

On Friday at least 163 Palestinians and six police officers were wounded in clashes across Jerusalem, the Palestinian Red Crescent and Israeli police said.

A spokeswoman said medics opened a field hospital to treat the high number of patients.

The Red Crescent said most of the wounded were hurt in clashes at the Al-Aqsa mosque compound and that most of the injuries were caused by rubber bullets. A spokeswoman said medics opened a field hospital to treat the high number of patients.

If the videos on Friday were bad and it was looking like Israel is on a brink of a holy war then last night was much more serious.

Video footage posted on social media showed Israeli police firing tear gas and stun grenades, some of them landing inside the Al-Aqsa Mosque in the latest in a series of confrontations that are pushing the contested city to the brink of eruption.

What the mainstream media failed to shows s the fact that the Palestinians were ready for conflict too as videos from inside the mosque reveal that they were having hundreds of rocks inside.

But the reality is that the mob was attacking the driver and stoning him before he drove into the “young Palestinian” (who doesn’t even appear to be injured by the collision)

Police said protesters threw stones at officers and a nearby road where thousands of Israeli Jews had gathered to pray.

In a statement, police alleged extremists were behind the violence and said it would “not allow extremists to harm the safety and security of the public”.

Tensions were particularly high as Israel marked ”Jerusalem Day“, an annual celebration of the capture of East Jerusalem.

The celebrations were canceled:
