Video shows Israelis firing at Palestinian rock throwers in East Jerusalem

Video from the flashpoint East Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jerrah appears to show right-wing Jews firing guns at Palestinians who are pelting them with rocks and fireworks.

The video was posted by the Haaretz daily’s Jerusalem reporter.

Sheikh Jerrah has been at the center of recent tensions amid plans to evict several Palestinian families from land claimed by Jewish groups.

The use of live fire by civilians would represent an escalation in violence in the conflict.
