Ex-PM Olmert on Jerusalem tensions: ‘A kind of intifada is brewing’

Former prime minister Ehud Olmert weighs in on the recent tensions in Jerusalem’s Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood over the pending evictions of several Palestinian families from homes claimed by right-wing Jews.

“There are extreme elements in the Jewish population who are fanning the fire and adding to the problem, which needs to be decided judicially,” he tells the Kan public broadcaster. “A kind of intifada is brewing, which is possible to prevent.”
