Israeli settlers attack on Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood

Several Palestinians were injured on Wednesday evening in an attack by Israeli police forces and Jewish settlers on Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in Occupied Jerusalem.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society reported four pepper spray injuries among local residents who were trying to prevent the settlers’ break-ins into their homes.

This came after Israeli settlers stormed the neighborhood and assaulted its residents amid an IOF-imposed lockdown, preventing peace activists’ entry to support local residents.

Israeli police claimed the arrest of a Palestine teenage girl, suspected of carrying out the attack, in a nearby school.

Police said the suspect was a 14-year-old girl who lives in Sheikh Jarrah.

Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood has been the target of repeated settlement activity by the Israeli government and religious settler organizations, due to its strategic location in Occupied Jerusalem.
