Dozens of protesters are gathered near the String Bridge at the entrance to Jerusalem in yet another rally against the death last year of settler teen Ahuvia Sandak.

The entrance to the city has reportedly been closed off, and police and Border Police officers are at the scene.

Sandak, 16, was killed in a car crash last year while fleeing from police, allegedly after throwing rocks at Palestinians. Over the past couple weeks, repeated protests over Sandak’s death have escalated into violence and arrests.

On Saturday night, four cops were wounded and 21 people were arrested at a protest in the same location. And last Thursday, at least 10 protesters were arrested after hurling rocks at police officers and smashing the window of a cop car.
