Police say officers are dealing with violent protests in several East Jerusalem neighborhoods this evening.

In the neighborhood of Jabel Mukaber, police say an officer fired into the air after “feeling threatened,” after dozens of masked Palestinians hurled stones and launched fireworks.

There are no reports of injuries.

Police say officers arrest six suspects in the Beit Hanina neighborhood, after they allegedly set fire to bins, hurled stones, and launched fireworks.

“Police will use all the necessary tools and measures to deal decisively and aggressively with anyone who tries to harm citizens or the security forces,” a police spokesperson says.

There have been clashes in East Jerusalem for several days now, as tensions are high across the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and in the capital.
