Police say arrests in E. Jerusalem ‘effective’

A Border Patrol Commander says that in spite of Tuesday’s terror attack, riots and violence in East Jerusalem are on the decline.

“The arrests in the [Arab] neighborhoods are effective,” the commander tells Channel 2’s Ohad Hemo.

Another soldier contends that the majority of rioters are teenagers, adding that the violent demonstrations lack popular support from the Palestinian leadership in the city’s Arab neighborhoods.
