Watch – Jerusalem turned into war zone: 80 Muslim terrorists injured in riots
At least 80 Muslim terrorists were wounded during violent riots with Israel Police and Border Police forces in Arab neighborhoods of East Jerusalem on Friday, following the elimination of a convicted terrorist Thursday night.
Muslim terrorists have turned several neighborhoods of East Jerusalem into a war zone. They are rioting, burning tires, throwing rocks, firebombs, fireworks and explosive devices at security forces.
Israel Police and Border Police are responding with crowd dispersal measures, including tear gas and rubber bullets.
Riots broke out Thursday night when a Muslim terrorist was shot and eliminated after shooting fireworks at security forces during a counter-terrorism operation in Issawyia.
The masked terrorist emerged in one of the alleys and set off the fireworks from close range posing a real and immediate danger to the policemen’s lives, the force said in a statement. One of the officers targeted the terrorist, neutralizing the danger.
He has been identified as 22-year-old Mohammed Obaid, a known Muslim terrorist who has been convicted in the past for plotting to carry out a shooting attack and was recently released from prison.
Over the past few weeks police have entered Issawiya on a nightly basis in a bid to track down Muslim terrorists members of a PLO terror cell believed to be at large in the neighborhood.
