Riots in East Jerusalem after Israeli provocation

Issue No. 2429

Riots have spread across occupied East Jerusalem. 

Palestinians have risen up in what some people are calling a third Intifada, or uprising, after a series of provocations. 

The government last week put forward plans to build 500 homes for Israeli settlers in the east of the city.

Palestinians fear that the Israeli government is about to change the rules on who can worship in the 

Al Aqsa compound, which is sacred to both Muslims and Jews. 

East Jerusalem has always been predominantly Palestinian, but Israeli settlers are determined to drive Palestinians out.
