Days Of Palestine – Jerusalem

Israeli police forces on Monday stormed Issawiya district, east of Occupied Jerusalem, and showered Palestinian homes with a hail of tear gas canisters.


According to eyewitnesses, Israeli police patrols stormed the neighborhoods of Al Dari and al-Madares in Issawiya and chased some local youths before spreading through the streets and randomly firing volleys of tear gas grenades on homes.


For many months, Israeli police forces have been raiding the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Issawiya on a daily basis, ransacking homes and arresting and assaulting Palestinians.


The Israeli campaign against Issawiya is aimed at oppressing and making life miserable for all who live there as part of efforts to push the native residents out of the holy city.
