No chill: Jerusalem cops clash with rioters throwing snowballs, stones

Not everyone is having fun in Jerusalem’s wintery bacchanal, with several reports of Palestinians attacking civilians and police with snowballs and worse.

Police say they used crowd dispersal methods against snow- and stone-throwers near Mount Scopus, on Sultan Sulaiman Street near the Old City and at the Armon Hanatziv promenade. Forty-five people are arrested, Ynet reports.

Police also say two youths were detained for throwing snowballs at cars from a bridge near Beit Safafa, though there was no reported damage to any vehicles.

Videos show a police car near Mount Scopus being attacked.

The Kan network shares footage of what it says is someone building a snow rocket on the Temple Mount, adorned with a Hamas flag.
