Police crack down on Sheikh Jarrah protesters

Police appear to be attempting to clear out demonstrators in Sheikh Jarrah, leading to some low-level scuffles.

Videos show police on horseback and foot pushing people away from a main demonstration site and reports indicate sound grenades are also used to clear out the area.

Another video, apparently from earlier, shows rival camps of Palestinians and Israeli nationalists chanting and singing while on opposite sides of a street in the Jerusalem neighborhood, the site of simmering tensions over the last several days.
