A video posted online by Kan shows protesters throwing stones and shooting fireworks at a Jewish-owned home in Maaleh Hazeitim, a settlement-like Jewish enclave in East Jerusalem’s Palestinian Ras al-Amud neighborhood.
In the video, the inhabitants of the home can be heard complaining that there are no police around to stop the perpetrators.

“Dozens of people on the street, not afraid, throwing stones, shooting fireworks at us, damaging our home,” a man is heard saying.
In videos from other parts of the city, large bangs can be heard echoing amid a heavy police presence, either from fireworks or security forces’ flashbangs.
