Fresh clashes between protesters, cops in Sheikh Jarrah

Clashes break out between police and dozens of protesters in Sheikh Jarrah, a Jerusalem neighborhood that has been a recent flashpoint over the pending eviction of several Palestinian families from homes claimed by Jewish nationalists.

Police say some of the protesters threw bottles at cops on the scene, while chanting incitement and singing songs in praise of “martyrs.” Officers are working to “restore order” and disperse the protest, according to a police statement.
