Police officers who were called to Jerusalem’s Mea Shearim neighborhood, apparently to deal with a domestic violence case, immediately faced an ambush of dozens of rioters who greeted them with a shower of rocks and other objects, the Israel Police says.

One cop was injured in his hand and damage was caused to the police vehicle, police say.

The Kan public broadcaster reports that Border Police officers were called in to rescue the cops.

The statement says police are investigating the purported domestic violence case.
