Fresh tension in Jerusalem as far-right MKs visit Damascus Gate

Fresh tensions are seen in the area of Jerusalem’s Old City and Damascus Gate, a day after the worst violence there in months as police and Arabs clashed.

Police are deployed in large numbers in the area as members of the far-right Religious Zionism party visit Damascus Gate in an apparent show of force following yesterday’s events.

There are reports of some new violence, and videos shared on social media show officers forcibly detaining a boy who mouthed off at a policeman.
