Footage emerges of Palestinians pursuing, attacking Israeli cops in Jerusalem

Footage emerges of Palestinians from the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Issawiya pursuing and attacking Israeli Border Police troops who were in civilian clothes and not on duty at the time.

Last night’s incident, published by channels 12 and 13, allegedly began when the cops drove the car through Issawiya, with Channel 12 saying they may have shot in the air.

A group of around six Palestinians pursued them and entered the predominantly Jewish French Hill neighborhood. Footage shows them hurling bricks at the vehicle, smashing its windows and pulling the driver outside. They continued to beat him, causing him to require hospitalization.

As one cop shot in the air, another had his firearm snatched away.

Six residents of Issawiya have reportedly been arrested over the incident.
