Renewed clashes break out in Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood

Not far from Jerusalem’s Old City, where Laylat al-Qadr prayers are being held on the Temple Mount, renewed clashes break out in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood.

The neighborhood has recently been the site of tensions over the pending eviction of several Palestinian families from homes claimed by nationalist Jews.

Police say a small protest there turned into rioting that included “waving Palestinian flags and throwing rocks toward the forces.” The officers there respond with riot dispersal means.
