Jerusalem District Court evacuated over security concerns

The Jerusalem District Court has been evacuated in light of security concerns, amid ongoing riots in the capital.

Security guards will remain at the courthouse, but all other occupants have been removed.

Earlier in the day, the court hosted Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s corruption trial, but the hearing ended over an hour before the evacuation.

The court is located in East Jerusalem.
